Twenty seven minutes ago, the door bell rang and there stood one of my all-time favorite people.
Dressed from head to toe like a miniature blue Santa with fur lined cap and soot-covered boots,
she had sprung from a shiny, package laden sleigh,
across the lawn and unto the porch making just a slight clatter (I know, cause the dog barked)
Gracefully balancing a box with the festive red label “Adult Signature Required”,
She quickly checked her list once and then twice,
cause I’ve been both naughty and nice.
And with a deft scan of my name and a hurried ‘good day’
she bounded back to her truck
to drive swiftly away.
I love seeing the FedEx and UPS trucks drive into my culs-de-sac. Especially in December. Just makes my heart race cause it usually means good things are on the way. This time it was a hefty bottle of Yao Ming Brut Sparkling Wine from a fellow wine blogger. Very Merry indeed!
