In January I sent her gift on her birthday. It was going to China, so I figured she might get it by Valentine's day so I threw some heart candy in there, too. But the crown jewel I put in her box was a last minute find...a journal...with prompts to write about all the stupid people in the world. I really couldn't help myself. We have had almost 10 years (Happy Anniversary, Mary!) of emails and phone calls concerning our annoying dealings with mankind. It seemed fitting. The fact that it had a picture of hands flipping the birdy throughout? Awesome. Note: totally unnoticed until after I bought it and I included a sticky note saying such;)
Well, 2 days before my actual birthday I received her package in the mail from Hong Kong. Right on time. Figures. And after I gasped at the happy tape and unwrapped her package to me, I screamed in delight.
She had taken that same journal, and written on every page in response to those quotes/prompts. Even better? She took tiny black stickers to block all those awful flipping-the-birdy signs;)
Just had to share...
Our inscriptions to each other. Don't you love the dots covering up that awful hand signal? heehee
One of the page quote/prompts:
Maybe people aren't so bad, afterall....
Thanks for the reminder, Mary!
