Mailbox Mayhem

We had a few fireworks left over from 4th (these were the special environmentally safe kind, the fuses are lit by atomic fusion instead of fire) so of course we had to go ahead and use them, right?
By some weird twist of fate one of them got off course and zipped into our mailbox
incinerating everything inside. There was this one blob that looked like melted plastic, but what would that be doing in the mailbox. Completely unidentifiable, we will never know what it was...........so sad really

I hope it wasn't some good mail.

that's what I'm hoping

R.I.P clever Good Mail from Elastic. You were so young.....so vital.....so recyclable. Let us pray that you'll move on and cross over into that big recycling plant in the sky- with Jeannies help, of course.

And now I'm going to show you everything that you missed out on because of your irresponsible firework hootenanny. :(

It's All For Jeannie In A Bottle! I even included Pop Rocks and special energy gum that makes clever, award-winning blog posts practically write themselves.

Uh oh... :S

Mailbox Mayhem was a cleverly diguised plot to not have to acknowledge that Elastic might be
father Al's favorite (its probably really NCS what with that kewwl cow bell event coming up- I bet it gets more participation than Father Al's green concert thing)

I did get that awesome good mail "Jean Knee in a bottle thing." My daughter ran away with the pop rocks but I still got that high energy gum, and that sweet little gloating note.
If Elastic had not been so clever to have photographed said package my little plot would have worked.

JKnee--Thank you so much for my chocolate-happiness in an card...gobbled without sharing!

You are diabolical! Where does your mind come up with these things! You remind me of my nephew, whose sense of humor and way of thinking is as wild and crazy as yours. I love it!
:D Brenda

Sorry, I kind of got lost in a cloud of wonderment at the "atomic fusion" part.

If your mailbox glows in the dark, I'm totally jealous. Otherwise you have my sympathy for whatever didn't really happen. Apparently.

Jean Knee said...

RAJ- only the richey people in our neighborhood have those glowing mailboxes and I think they're just lit with an ordinary bulb

What a lucky fish to have you "watching" over him. Thanks for the compliments on my "carding?" Once I get my "creative" juices started I sure don't like to have to quit. Have a great day.

I'm still boycotting this post. I refuse to acknowledge, accept, or condone your underhanded antics, jeannie. You should be ashamed of yourself. Can't you just be a graceful loser while I parade around in my Al Gore endorsed toilet paper tiara and matching environmentally friendly toilet paper gown? I'll let you be my lady in waiting. You can throw the organic tofu chinks at people, because throwing rose petals does not make mother earth happy.

my verification is BMNJ. Bowel Movement in New Jersey?

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Or maybe that New Jersey is a Bowel Movement?

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Ummm, I need to correct my former post to organic tofu CHUNKS, not chinks. Lest I rile up any Chinese people around here who have a secret fear of Jeannie scooping them up and throwing them around.
