The mail arrived the other day just as it arrives everyday, minus Sunday.
"BOX FULL! Please empty your mailbox." Were the instructions written on an orange postal service notice taped to my front door.
The mailbox was packed of the usual...bills, fliers, coupons, catalogues, ads, and junk mail. What was unusual were the three pieces of baby mail shoved inside.
"This is random?" I thought as I quickly thumbed threw my mail, walking away from my mailbox. "A baby magazine? Hmm..." I dismissed the magazine. It was obviously delivered to me in error.
I dumped the pile of mail on the kitchen table and began sorting it into the usual piles. Bills, coupons, ads, and trash. That's when I came across baby magazine number two.
"What the heck!" I said to myself. "Whose mail is this?" I inspected the white bar coded address boxes in the bottom left corners. They both read: Nicole Garcia. I also received a welcome packet from Similac. No...I'm not expecting.
My husband walked in the door.
"I see you got the mail," he stated as he read the orange postal notice left by our mailman. "It says we have a large envelope or magazine to pick up," he informed me. "You want me to go get it?"
"No...if it's anything like what was delivered," I handed him the baby mail, "they can keep it!"
