Happening in reel time

Re all that Christmas shopping stuff, there was one thing I hadn’t actually done yet. It just seemed like I needed to know more about it first, if for no other reason than that the one on the wishlist was discontinued and Amazon was suggesting something that sounded like the latest version, but it wasn’t something I knew anything about. Best to check.

So Christmas present or no, I asked that child’s spouse last night whether this type of fishing reel was a good substitute for that one. Same weight and length and apparent strength, anyway.

Text in return: I don’t think this message was intended for me.

Me: It is, it’s from their wish list.

Stunned silence.

Return text in the morning: our toddler likes to bang on keyboard keys at any opportunity.

Concurrent return email from said spouse: I don’t know how that ended up on my list. I don’t know what it is! Thanks so much for checking.

And now there is something that person actually wants on its way to them from a list that’s been carefully gutted and cleaned.

That is so funny – and a close call.

Just like in school it pays to revise your notes. Oh my!

Whoops! Good thing you asked. Imagine how confused they would have been to open it.
