I just wanted you to know that your package has arrived at my family’s place in Kentucky. My mom was a little confused:
Mom: “The package you sent arrived today.”
Me: “What are you talking about?”
Mom: “You mean you didn’t send this package? It’s addressed to you, from you.” Me: “OHHHH!!! That’s my Sockret Pal package!!!”
Mom: “Oh… do you want me to open it?”
Me: “NOOO!!!!” (Then I had to explain the whole secret swap thing.)
It was kind of funny. A little later, my sister said “There’s a package here for you!” (She obviously hadn’t spoken to my mom yet.) I explained it again, but she knew about the swap already because I’d explained it before.
It’s waiting there for me and I should be able to open it next weekend when we return from our vacaion :o)
