red panda eating bamboo

A mystery with a happy ending!

I stayed holed up in the house all day today because of the heat, and when I ventured outside I saw that I had received two Amazon boxes about the size of shoeboxes. I recently ordered a CD and a coffee grinder from Amazon and I was pretty disgusted that they had sent the CD in a separate, enormous box.

I set about opening the boxes. I was kind of wondering why the tape job on one of them was not as neat as usual and why my name was printed on a piece of paper taped to the box. That didn't seem like Amazon's usual modus operandi.

Here's what I saw when I first opened the box. Collapse )
