I had an absolutely wonderful birthday—thanks again to all of you for the birthday wishes!
Iwanski got me some really great gifts, including a new exercise game for the Wii! (EA Sports Active.) Whoo-hoo! More on that later…but speaking of games, I played Bookworm Adventures for over two and a half hours last night. It’s just as addictive as the original! I will surely need my new exercise game, after spending three hours a day sitting on my ass playing Bookworm.
Anyway, I realized that I forgot to tell y’all about the packing slip that came in the Bookworm package from Amazon.com. My sister had asked that a message be printed on the packing slip, and this is how Amazon printed it:
Happy Birthday, Carly! I hope that this Hoo! is as much fun as the original compensation will follow. Love,
This is what the message was supposed to read (which I think is almost as funny as what Amazon printed):
Happy Birthday, Carly! I hope that this NEW Bookworm game (Adventures! Woo Hoo!) is as much fun as the original. (An application for IL unemployment compensation will follow... :))
Sheki (and Rick and Nora, too!)
I guess I owe both my sister, and someone at Amazon, for giving me a big laugh on my birthday.
