So, I open the note that came with the gift and it says "Merry Christmas! So I finally managed to deliver this Christmas gift that I bought for you about 4 years ago :) For a while I couldn't find a box. Then I had a box, but had lost the gift. Now that we've reorganized the house, the gift showed up again." I laughed out loud because this is a typical story in the life of this friend! And I vaguely remember talking to her on the phone several Christmas's ago when she told me that she had a present for me. Of course, I was excited, but I even vaguely remember either telling or thinking to myself, "But when will I actually get this present?" And now I have the answer...4 years later! But it was worth the wait. And if I wasn't so darn warmblooded, I might actually be able to sleep in them with the unseasonably cool weather we are having this July.
Thank you so much to my incredibly thoughtful, if not a little scatter-brained and slightly afraid of the post office, friend! You know who you are :) And if you want to reveal yourself, just leave a comment!
