reverendmother birthday rules
I have a Palm Tungsten E. I love it dearly.
All pertinent birthdays are input into the calendar, and they are set to repeat every year in perpetuity.
I have a to-do item called "events". When that item pops up on my to-do list, I scan the next month or so to figure out which birthdays/anniversaries are coming up, so that I can buy cards/gifts. After I've dispatched with those events, I set the to-do item to pop up again next month.
In spite of this air-tight system--this marvel of organizational prowess:
1. When it comes to your birthday, you will receive from reverendmother either of the following:
--a card, sent in time for your birthday
--a phone call ON your birthday
...but probably not both, unless a mental miracle occurs.
2. When I go to put the card in the envelope, I will discover that the envelope is glued shut due to the rainy conditions during the recent Target trip and the fact that I was juggling a toddler, my cell phone (toddler entertainment), a tupperware of Cheerios, and numerous parcels.
Consequently, I will have to pry the envelope open, then tape it shut with the card inside.
3. If I have to tape your envelope shut, I will not be able to find scotch tape. Thus, I will have to resort to tape of the masking, electrical, or if I'm feeling fancy, duct variety.
4. If I have seen fit to buy a gift, I will be unable to wrap it, because:
--all I have are gift bags, and they are either too large, too small, too frilly for a one-year-old boy, or too Christmasy for a July birthday.
And besides, there's no tissue paper to arrange breezily inside said bags
--I don't want to use a gift bag anyway because I am shipping this gift and it would be too bulky
--the only wrapping paper I have is a scrap of Christmas paper, but it is 4 inches x 36 inches in size
--did I mention the lack of scotch tape?
5. I then say a prayer of thanksgiving for the mail stop place around the corner and their complete line of shipping supplies. Ahh... decorative mailing envelopes. Wrapping paper for the lazy/ill-equipped, and a lifesaver for the working mother.
PastorG and little "baby" A, this is for you!
