A riveting true story . . . call to inquire about the movie rights.
My good friend Mary who works for FedEx walked in with an exceeding large box. I am taking refrigerator sized Jerry rigged box that at least 7 umpa lumpas could fit inside. I saw her carrying it in and admired her physical prowess as she seemed not to be phased in the least by this enormous and I assumed heavy box.
I called out “That thing is huge!”. She said, “Yeah but it’s really light.”
What could it be I wondered? I opened it up to see the most unexpected and ridiculous contents imaginable. Well I guess the contents were not so strange as the amount of space that was utilized. Inside this box that could house a large family of badgers was a broken fishing rod and a Pro-Edition Jacket.
These items had been deemed defective by a big box store that shall remain nameless and sent back to us for a refund. Strangely we do not make fishing rods and the PHD candidate that packed this box had mistaken the wayward rod for a second Pro-Edition Jacket. Strange days indeed. Luckily we now have a castle, or submarine, or cave, or spaceship available when we need a break from work at the Prois office.
