perplexing package

I recieved a package in the mail today from my mom.  I opened it and seven packs of Wrigley’s winterfresh gum came tumbling out.  No note or explanation.  My mom put four stamps on the package to send it, instead of going to the post office to have it weighed.  Which means she paid $1.84 to send me $1.75 worth of gum.

While I appreciate the package and thought behind this package, I sort of wish I knew what the thought was.

    My mom used to send me care packages that had things like cans of tuna fish in them. It’s like, “Thanks… but those are easy to get at the store. That’s only about 50 feet from my apartment. So… um?”

    I am also interested in the thought behind this package. My mom likes to send me things like fancy packages of tissues, which are always too pretty to use and end up just piling up under our sink. A nice thought, but really? tissues?

    Maybe this is a hint that your breath wasn’t all that fresh over Christmas and she never had time to buy you some gum while you were there.

    Well…at least it isn’t a variety of exotic knives, like my brother once sent me with no note or return address.

    Because I thought they were gum, see, and chewed them, and now..

    no lips. I have no lips.
