in the mail

The Pickle Presents are in the mail!! I am so excited. I can't wait to hear how they are received. I did my best and it was more work than I had expected, but I am glad I did it. I love spreading love in the mail.

It truly was random. I had B put the initials of the people who requested to play along and he picked two. That was how I decided. I wish I could have sent more. But there is only so much wrapping one person can do.

I am in the hotel lobby. It is almost midnight. I feel like I have been running around all day. And getting to the post office truly was my greatest accomplishment.

    Pickle presents are an idea created by a friend. The story behind them
    goes something like this: a child was in the hospital and her uncle
    told her he was going to bring her a present. When he returned to visit
    again, he forgot it. Oops. And so really hyped it up. On his next
    visit, he remembered, and it turned out to be a pickle (the big ones
    you get out of a barrel). Needless to say, the girl in the hospital bed
    wasn't overly impressed. And so pickle presents became any present that
    was oversold.

    Then another friend decided it would be fun to put together 25 of these
    pickle presents and do sort of an advent calendar in a box. And so this
    year I joined in the fun and sent two boxes to to two different people.
    I literally randomly selected from people who said they would be
    willing to play along.

    What is kind of funny is that my livejournal moniker is sweet_pickles.
    Although the name has little to do with pickles. And for the record I
    prefer double sour.
