An Unexpected Package Arrived in the Mail
This was in the mailbox when I got home on Thursday.. Beer and bikes, my two favorite past times. I love getting random stuff in the mail!
When I was a preschooler I got a large box in the mail from my grandparents, probably for my birthday or something, that was completely unexpected - it just sort of arrived one day. Mom helped me open it (ok, most likely she opened it for me) and inside was a crane. You know, the kind they use to unload ships and build buildings with. As I recall it was made of yellow plastic girders that snapped together and had a battery operated boom arm that would turn and raise/lower some kind of hook or bucket thingy. Not too sure how long it survived, but I do remember that by the time we (meaning mom) got the thing assembled it was time for my nap - talk about sheer torture.. I'm pretty sure I snuck out of my room and played with it anyway.
