A CD arrived in the mail for me today. Neither that nor the fact that it was from Amazon are particularly surprising considering my tendencies.

What did surprise me is that even though this is a CD that I want and had considered buying it’s not one which I did. I never ordered this. I mean, it just kind of appeared, like Amazon was reading my mind or something. I know I order a lot from them, but had I warranted some sort of extra special bonus prize for doing so? Had I reached some new level of internet shopping addiction where I’m placing orders in my sleep?

I was flumoxed. I was perplexed. I was downright boggled for over an hour. Only then did it occur to me to look at the packing slip.

Mystery solved! The CD? It came from my folks and is the first of several birthday princess packages which will be filtering in this week. I felt like a heel for opening a gift early but it was good to have dispelled the very thick cloud of confusion.
