One of my Facebook buddies in England had asked me for my mailing address back in December. I thought she was going to mail a Christmas card to me, which is what I sent her when she gave me her address in return. Well, I got a big surprise today – a late Christmas gift from her!
I guess because it was coming from England that the shipments take a lot longer to arrive. She mailed it 2 weeks before Christmas and I am just now getting it. That was a long time in the mail – even though I admit it was a very long trip from England across the Atlantic to probably New York and then all the way down here.
I feel badly, though. I only sent her a Christmas card and did not send her a gift. I wish she had said something – I would have loved to pick out something uniquely American and send it to her as a gift. I guess I will have to find out when is her birthday and send her a birthday gift, instead.
