    But i was forced to open the parcel. (so I left the naughty corner only whit one feet)
    The whole story:
    Today I finished my worked earlier and traveled to the customs office. There where two mens working. One maybe 35 and one maybe 55. I had given my customer note to the older guy. He went go to the adjoining room. I was waiting five Minutes. Sometimes I heard a mhmm and a ohpf. Then he came back, carrying a really big big big big box. I thought, could not really be mine, to big, but indeed it was written Secret Sant on the top.
    He said: Please open the package.

    I told him that I also don´t know what is inside, because it´s for christmas. Again after five Minutes, he helped already to open the parcel, because it was wrapped really really good. I opened the parcel and was already stunning. Inwardly I thought already wooohoow, there are so many gifts inside, yippieh.

    Both of the guys take now a look into the package. The older guy asked: For how many people are those gifts? I told him, it for me, the upcoming baby... he looked seríously on me... for my husband, I said, smiling to him.
    Thats plenty he said.
    I thought: Please don´t asked what DH will do with the whole fabric...

    The younger guy said: Please open the wrapped gifts, maybe there is a Laptop or something technical inside, because it is so heavy. So I opend it and I started jumping and giggling inside of my mind, about a lot more of plenty plenty plenty gifts.
    The younger looked disapointed about the whole "women stuff" and said: ok, I guess the tax form is correct.
    So I took the parcel and left the office quickly.


    So I´m really sorry that the parcel is now already open, but it was out of my authority. I told Santa already that I personaly feel really bad about this fault I swear that I will not use the gifts before the ninth of december.

    Thanks a lot to my secret santa, I wrote you already a PM!

    Oh I hope whoever my secret santa is hasn't been worrying - I got my parcel at least 10 days ago, and I let Terri know, but I didn't realize I should post here.

    I shook it a little bit. It made a slight jingling noise.

    How long 'til the ninth?!

    You got that right. I was always told that you should never drink alone. People will think you're an alcoholic if you drink alone. Can't have that!!!!!

    Dreamer of course I am here keeping an eye on you - you might drink the whole bottle without me and we all know sharing would NOT be nice LOL

    I am sure many packages will be winging there way to new homes this week
    To keep your mind fresh- learn one new thing a day !
