Look what I found in my mailbox the other day!
I've read before that you can mail any number of unusual items as long as the correct postage is affixed to them. This is the first time I've received one.
Being the mechanical genius that I am...it took me a bit of experimenting to figure out how to get the message out without cutting the bottle open. (I'm not the brightest bulb in the box) I tried to jab it out with a pencil...just broke the lead off. Next I tried retrieving it using my tweezers...not long enough. Finally in desperation I took a better look at the bottle and discovered that it was made so that the bottom of the bottle could be twisted off...a solution that was almost too clever for me.
I went on a search to find out other kinds of things have found their odd little ways through the postal service. This is one of my favorites:
Sound-emitting toy. A monkey-in-box toy that, upon shaking, shouted, "Let me out of here! Help! Let me out of here!" Addressed in big letters to LITTLE JOHNNIE. Sound toy was equipped with a new battery. Delivery at doorstep, 6 days.
Please try this and let me know what you mail and if the recipient got it. I think I will do the same. Be watching....you may find a surprise in your mailbox one day soon!
