Snail Mail

Let me change your definition of snail mail to sloth. The Halloween candy I ordered back in September for our big Halloween party just arrived. Yes, today, November 25, 2011, the day after Thanksgiving, I will be enjoying Brach’s Autumn Mix. In my deluded American mind the candy is at least in the right season, but in reality the flowers are blooming and we are deep into spring. Oddly enough, the SAT prep books I ordered while in Pretoria two weeks ago arrived Monday. Sometimes several bags of mail sit for a long time in the service center before being picked up. There is no predicting mail delivery here.
