Update: Mystery solved (check the comments). The person who I suspected is indeed the culprit, though I'm still a little baffled by the Sephora box. Anyway, Brad Dearborn is a dear friend and mentor to me (a spiritual mentor as well as a mentor in the art of practical jokes). Brad led a bible study that I was in in high school and had such an impact on my life back then. As you can see, his sense of humor is wonderfully dry and wickedly funny - yes, there were many a dropped off item at my parents house over the years from toilets to a headless goose. And those things always made their way back to Brad's house, either by me or by my mom, who, I must say, also has a wickedly mischevious sense of humor. Thank you, Brad. You've provided many years of laughter and it's moving on to another generation. Brilliant. I love you dearly! I'm off to San Diego tomorrow morning early to visit with dear, dear friends. I'm so excited and I'm going crazy right now trying to get ready. I'll be back next Monday.
Sloan received a mystery package in the mail today from someone who obviously reads this blog. It is a ceramic giraffe with it's legs crossed and a couple of tickets to the St. Louis Zoo. Who is it from? It was sent from Ballwin. At first I thought I knew for sure who had sent it, but the Sephora box has thrown me for a loop. Anyway, whoever you are - well done! I have laughed all afternoon. If you didn't read the giraffe post, click here.
