And now you know where I get it.
How was your 10/10/10? Eventful? Fun? Just another day? This last October 10, 2010 was more than just an ordinary day for us for it was 10/10/10. The grand poombah highlight of this 10/10/10 was a special package I received two days prior. On this package, it said, "To be opened on Sunday (the 10th.") Now. I don't always do what I'm told. Most of the time I do exactly the opposite of what I'm told. I'm a royal pain that way. Packages, however, are the exception to this. Ever since the Unibomber, I always do what it says on packages. It just seams safer that way.
And so at 10:10am on 10/10/10, I opened this package. I wasn't going to brag about this package because I didn't want you all to get jealous. I didn't want you all green with envy because you didn't get a package too. But being as she posted it herself on her blog, I decided to holler it out to you masses.
Megan, or Sparks, of www.remarksfromsparks.com sent me ten items, each with a special note, handwritten in her unique and sparkly griffonage. First came the card, wrapped all shiny-like in "ten"foil, then came a clock set to ten, ten Sharpies in ten different colors, Phase 10, ten-ounces of Grey Poupon (with Horseradish, addressed specifically to Madame Mustard), ten pumpkin lights on a string, 10 Things I Hate About You on DVD, Rachel Ray's Book of 10, a ten-ounce candle that smells of all things rabid, and a jar of SPF 10. Last but not least, she sent a bag of Riesens, with an affectionately attached note titled: "10 Riesens I Like You."
One of Megan's documented likables was, "You like me for me."
'Tis true, Megan darling. I like you for you. And I thank you.
