Sometimes Ya Just Never Know!

What would you say if you got a box from FedEx with this written on it?

Now I must preface this by saying I just finished tweaking a chapter in a new WIP where my Protag gets a box by UPS and inside is a dead, rotting rat with a knife sticking in the middle of July and unbearably hot weather! back to the box with this interesting label. I was "warned" that it was coming and that I would need to be able to keep it cool. *blink, blink* But I couldn't pry the list of contents from sweet Diana Flegal. I must say, she's better at keeping a secret than my friend Nora's husband Fred!

She was tough as nails Joyce! Not a drop dripped from her lips! No matter how much I whined and cajoled...and I'm pretty whiny when I try.

Okay...back to the story. Anyway...I'm signing for the package and telling the FedEx guy about the scene from my WIP...and the poor guy is backing away from me
like I have the plague. I laughed again and said, "Well it was UPS anyhow, you know how Brown can be."

That was all she wrote! The guy bolted for the door and disappeared in a cloud of dust. Sheesh...did I remember to tell him that I write novels? *sigh*

Anyhow...this was what was in the mysterious white box!

They are FABULOUS honkin' HUGE chocolate (milk, dark, and white) covered strawberries from Shari's Berries. My dieting has crashed. My body is in a carb coma. And I've slipped into a state of nirvana that transcends all mortal(male) understanding.

ROFLOL...every woman I know understands this bliss!

LOL...thank you Joyce Hart, the website work was a labor of love...hold up...what's that? posterior parts do not wish to offer up a thanks for their added mass.

Ugh! Ignore them! It's all behind me. I never pay them any attention!

I love you Joyce!

    I can see that dude making a fast getaway! Next time, chase him, yelling, "I write suspense novels!" See what happens.

    LOL to both of you! *shakes head* The poor FedEx guy! If it had been my regular UPS guy, he already knows I'm nuts after all these years!

    But that poor FE kid is gonna be marked for life.

    From one ENFJ to another -- I totally understand. Bravo. Now, where's my strawberry? ;)
    Bonnie S. Calhoun said...
    *snort-giggle*...sorry quilly...those bad boys are ALL gone! They were outrageously good too!

    Bonnie, you crack me up! I was imagining some many more sinister things. Glad it was chocolates though. Calories aside, one of God's blessings has got to be chocolate. And pralines.......don't get me started!
    Diana Flegal said...
    Strawberries- totally legal on a low carb diet and chocolate- is an ESSENTIAL mineral for the brain so we sent you supplements! You are going to be one healthy gal!
    Can't wait to put a hug on you in Philly!
    Bonnie S. Calhoun said...
    ROFLOL...supplements...yea...well I'm gonna be so supplement laden that you may not be able to get your arms around me for a hug! :-)

    Oh wow! I wish Joyce loved me like that, Bonnie! Yum, Yum, then again, I'm killing myself on the P90x work out and need to get my diet lined up to go with it.

    What a great story!! You're fab, Bonnie! Now go work on that WIP.

    Love, Rachel

    LOL...It's a never ending battle Rachel. I'm trying to get my big posterior to the G-Y-M.

    Maybe I just need to embrace the fluffiness :-)
