Let me just start this off by saying that it is hardly uncommon for me to find items outside of my front door.
Small Amazon packages.
Large Amazon packages.
Hungry (and extremely noisy) quails.
Gigantic, freakishly frightening Palo Verde beetles (Google these. I dare you)…
Copious amounts of sand and leaves.
Mid-sized Amazon packages.
Okay, so maybe I have a serious problem when it comes to shopping on Amazon. I’m working on it… sorta. That’s totally not the point I’m trying to make though.
The concept that I’m trying to drive home today is plain and simple: I find random things on my doorstep on a very regular basis. Therefore, I have developed an almost compulsive habit of peeping out of my front door to see if any cool goodies (or scary creatures) are waiting for me on the patio.
I also have a nearly compulsive tendency to track the shipping status of my online purchases multiple times a day, so I’m not too sure why I look outside for packages when I know full well that they haven’t arrived yet. It’s so weird, but it’s almost as though I expect deliveries from a mysterious benefactor to miraculously appear on a daily basis. I know this is highly improbable, but it never stops me from poking my head out into the blistering heat to check anyway. You know, “just in case”. 😛
Ya’ll, I got a bit of a shock today.
