Why I love...
The UPS guy just arrived and delivered a package. "Dog's harmless," I called to him. "I know he is," he called back. "Hi, Alfie!" he said, and handed him a biscuit. Then he said to me, while I took the package: "Saw you at Dunkin Donuts this morning but you drove away before I could give you the package."
Busted! Yes, I was at Dunkin Donuts this morning. I went to the dump and it was on the way and I was feeling inadequately coffee'ed.
Earlier, the rural mailman came. (Actually, mailwoman, but that didn't look right when I typed it). "I felt so bad when your tulips were blooming that you weren't here to see them," she said. "So I took a picture. I'll leave it in your mailbox tomorrow."
