monday photo essay: mail call

One of the best parts of my job is the mail. I know. The mail sounds lame, but when you get packages almost every day, it makes it even better. Sort of worth it for the persistent phone calls from various agencies and marketing people.

Here’s my Monday, thus far, in pictures.

Hey!! The mail’s here!! The mail’s here!! This is kind of a sizable box. Please be a pony. Or vodka. Or a puppy. Come on puppy! Or pony. Well, vodka would be OK, too. But I’m really hoping for this to be a puppy.

Well, it’s not a puppy. Or a pony. Or vodka. However, I will say I’m more than pleased that it’s a big, soft, stuffed alligator. I’m really happy, actually, that it’s a stuffed alligator. Even better. You don’t have to feed the stuffed alligator.

The to-be-named alligator has now taken up residence with Pig, the guardian of the desk. Pig was happy to have the companion. I don’t imagine hanging out with a bottle of hand sanitizer all day is fun. Now at least they have each other.

    I think you should name it Betty Wampler.

    I’m so jealous you have an alligator. All I have on my desk is an Ivy plant which I’ve managed to keep alive for 9 mths now. Oh and an Irish coaster that says “Get Lucky.”

    It’s a mixed bag, really. For every day like Monday, there are four others where I get a newsletter for the Pottery Club and a homemade CD of some MySpace band I’ve never heard of.

    Soooooo … did you ever name it? I got real gators down here if you want one. They turn up as road kill about as often as deer do in WV! Ever seen gator roadkill??? Definitely something different. Anyway … so what did you name him???

    This doesn’t have a name yet! I need to pick a name. You’re good with names. Anything strike you?

    I could always name it Pickles.
