Postcard Postcript

So those of you that bravely volunteered to give me your addresses, they have been mailed. It was fun for Mr. Personality to put them in the mail slot at the post office, so thank you for giving him the opportunity.

I wish I could say we had a big teaching moment about the post office and what they do there, but for some reason it didn't happen.

Although while I was at the counter talking to the postal lady about the different prices to mail different sizes of postcards, (who really knew?) a scary looking guy gave Mr. Personality his little "please take a number" ticket. And I never even realized it until I was ready to leave. I freaked out a bit since the unwashed hair guy could have given him a cigarette and I wouldn't have even had a clue.

That became the teaching moment. As soon as we got in the car I pounced, "Please don't take anything from strangers without asking mama first, ok?" I don't think I made any particular point with him, so we'll have to repeat it tomorrow.

And, as I mailed them off, I realized that I put no return address on any of them. Not because I wanted to hoard your addresses and deny you mine, but there really wasn't much room on the cards! So if your life simply won't be complete without my address, I will be happy to give it to you.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming, the hijacking of my blog by Frank the Leaky Pipe god.

AHEM...YOU MUST ALWAYS CAPITALIZE THE 'G' IN GOD. I AM A GOD AND I DO EVERYTHING IN CAPITALS, THAT IS WHAT GODS DO BECAUSE WE ARE IMPORTANT!

I AM SORRY TO SAY I MISSED YOUR REQUEST FOR ADDRESSES BUT IF YOU ARE STILL SENDING POSTCARDS THEN YOU CAN SEND MINE (ALONG WITH BAKED GOODS) TO:

I love Frank the Leaky Pipe God with-a-capital-G.

I wish I had some leaky pipes for him.

I am woefully lacking in my mythology knowledge. I simply had no idea there was more than one Leaky Pipe God. Good thing I read your blog, Gina!

SUZANNE, OH LOWLY, UNEDUCATED HUMAN, YOU NEED MORE THAN ONE GOD TO FIX LEAKY PIPES, WOMAN! THERE ARE LOTS OF LEAKY PIPES IN THE WORLD. DUH! YOU THINK ONE LEAKY PIPE GOD CAN DO ALL THAT WORK? WHO ARE YOU? BRIDEZILLA?! I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW WE ARE OVERWORKED AND UNDERSTAFFED HERE AT THE BUREAU OF LEAKY PIPES AND ASSUNDRY PLUMBING DIFFICULTIES.

YOU HUMANS COULD LEARN A FEW THINGS ABOUT LEAKY PIPES AND HELP US OUT HERE A LITTLE BUT NOOOOOO...YOU HAVE TO PRAY TO THE LEAKY PIPE GODS...OH LEAKY PIPE GODS, HEEEELLLLP ME, I'M A HELLLPLESS GIRLY MAN, I'M A HELPLESS GIRLY WOMAN...UGH! WHO DO YOU THINK GAVE YOU HOME DEPOT?! YOU THINK WE JUST PUT THOSE EVERYWHERE BECAUSE WE LIKE THE COLOR ORANGE?!
