I hear the noise, that deep, rumbling purr. The cat sits up, stares out the window, tail twitching in anticipation. Closer it comes, closer. My heart beats a little harder. What will it be? What is about to alter the course of my day? Will it be flat, or bulky? Will it contain untold treasures, bad news?
There! I see that flash of brown, whipping into the cul-de-sac. Screech, slide, slam!
I race to the door. I realize I need to get a life, then shake it off. Excitement floods my system. What has he got for me today???
UPS is here.
Oh come on. Admit it. You get just as excited as I do when you receive a package.
