    But Hobbes is thinking of a word that rhymes with numb.

    Dumb, maybe, but not numb.

    As if the USPS delivers twice in the same day.

    Reminds me of the time I learned that romantic weekends end on Monday. Back in those days they would promise to write…and I, fool of the world, believed they would.

    Have your Mom call them to find out and maybe put a rush on it because you are driving her nuts.

    This story line reminds me so much of waiting for my SeaMonkey kit and being so disappointed.

    When I was a child

    I caught a fleeting glimpse

    Out of the corner of my eye

    I turned to look but it was gone

    I cannot put my finger on it now

    The child is grown

    The dream is gone

    Checking for numbness is a legitimate medical test – it’s not just yanking his chain.

    If it were Singapore, the idea wouldn’t be that far fetched. I don’t know if they still do this, but they used to have mail delivery twice a day.

    I’ve heard people bemoan the fact that first class isn’t mailed twice a day any more. Guys, there are other was to communicate.

    In first grade, I wanted the Beany-copters that were advertised on “Beany and Cecil” (the animated version—I was too late for the puppet one). Wanted them so much! One day a kid brought one to the playground, and even I could see that it would have been a horrid disappointment. It turned slower than the ceiling fans at Steele’s Market. How would you get any lift from that? It wouldn’t even make up for the weight of the batteries.

    Such a setup for a childhood disappointment. Anyone remember the giant blowup dinosaurs advertised on the back page of comic books? I saved my money, sent away for them, waited & waited but finally my dad told me they’d never come, the whole thing was a scam. Hard lesson learned but it stuck with me all my life.

    Yes, this is the driving principle behind cell phone addiction. Because the mailman is constant.

    it said 4-6 weeks, the odds of it arriving before a month passes is zero, then the odds will begin to go up as to when it arrives.

    This waiting game built my character, for example, one day my boss came to me to say I would be getting another reportee, a young engineer who lost the use of an arm and short term memory due to an HS motorcycle accident. Later, the company president said I was the most patient manager in the company. It took another decade, but I finally got my reward, a golden handshake.

    Wait until he gets the motor powered propeller and the Chinese motor don’t last as long as the battery! Hobbies can really get him going to suggest it might be put in the wrong mail box.
