+sunsetmeadowlark Posted December 24, 2009 Share Posted December 24, 2009 (edited) Today started out with me planning on spending a nice relaxing day at home. All of the gifts are bought and wrapped, the food is ordered, the house is clean (well, as clean as it's getting anyway!), and all the outgoing packages are packed and ready to run out to the mailbox before the carrier gets here. I was still in my PJ's but that first cup of coffee must have had an extra jolt in it this morning! I got feeling energetic and decided to work out for a bit. I still had lots of time before the mail usually comes so I figured I'd get dressed and run everything out to the box after I was done. Wouldn't you know, I got about halfway through and I hear the mail truck pull up to the box. Crud! There's no way I'm running out there in my nightie with my bed head and no makeup so I guess that means I'm going to have to brave the last minute holiday madness and make a trip to the PO. I dejectedly finished my workout and got ready to go. I hopped in the car and after spending a full 5 minutes trying to make the right turn off my road onto the highway I finally made it out into the mad dash, all the while thinking "This is SO not what I want to be doing today!". About a mile from my house, amidst dodging the other frantic drivers, I spied something out of the corner of my eye. I about gave myself whiplash turning to see if it was what I thought it was and yes, it was. But as luck would have it I was in the wrong lane so I carried on to the PO where I was exceedingly grateful to online postage processing, the line was huge but I was able to just drop off and go! I swung in and grabbed some lunch to go (yeah, yeah... so much for the workout!) and then made my way along the side roads back to get a closer look at what I had spied before. Yep, it was exactly what I had thought it was and everything had the potential of making this a very nice day but only if a few factors went in my favor, something that was highly unlikely given the fact that my nice relaxing day had turned into a rat race. But the Gods must have been smiling on me today because all of those factors worked out EXACTLY as I hoped and what was a day of grumbles ended up turning into a day of smiles. So, now you get to figure it out. What did I see/do that has me so excited? The first person to answer correctly will win a Best Friends geocoin. The color will be random, whichever one I happen to grab. It will be a fully trackable version but it will be from my bag of seconds and will have some sort of flaw (none of them were too bad but a few were bad enough that I don't feel comfortable selling them). I will mail the coin to the winner sometime after Christmas or you can activate it and I will release it into the wild for you, your choice! Cointest 1 has a winner but please see post #34 for cointest 2! Edited December 24, 2009 by sunsetmeadowlark Quote Link to comment
