My First Package In College
Today I got my first package in college.
I was SO happy.
Be warned - this is one of those, "Good Story - Tell it again. Tell it again" kind of posts.
[which basically means -- pointless]
There I was sitting - checking my Monday email - hoping to have a few from Mitchell,
an email was sent to me with the subject titled.
My heart nearly dropped.
I've been sent a package?!
I ran down to the commons,
"Max Poirier - I have a package"
and signed indicating I had received it.
There were too many people waiting for the elevator so I ran up the stairs,
and opened the package.
I've never received a package in college before so I didn't have anything to compare it to.
But just from an outsiders point of view - I would say my parents thought they were sending something to Mitchell as if he were in the wilderness of Mexico.
Or maybe they were practicing for when they do send him a package because
My package was:
1. Taped. Not normally though -like, there was tape everywhere. It was as if they wanted to wrap it like a Christmas present but just used tape so that it would be see-through and impermeable.
2. Instead of using a normal postage box - oh my gosh - I'm kind of embarrassed to write this - they used a cereal box - and wrapped it in brown paper.
3. For security - to make sure that the cookies insider were safe - they stuffed grocery bags inside the cereal box [so that they wouldn't move around].
My parents were either playing a joke - are incredibly innovative - or the economy situation is worse than I thought!
The letter was pretty funny too.

"On Halloween, make sure you look both ways before crossing the street, and have a light with you" - Dad.
and that's the Poirier-sense-of-humor that most people just don't understand.
I'm still really grateful - I don't care how you send me packages - I loved getting it and the cookies were delicious! Happy Halloween!
Thank you parents!
[Mitchell's emails did come - http://eldermitchellpoirier.blogspot.com/ -- they should be up soon]
