If Santa is from Africa...why is he white?
Oh my god, Brian, you can't just ask Santa why he's white!
However, my Secret Santa is from Africa. South Africa to be exact. And Santa is a woman to be more exact. And Santa is Taryn (taz-pie) to be the most exact! And she sent me (and DeeAnn and Hera) an awesome box of presents!
After an annoying ordeal at multiple post offices to actually get the package, I finally got it...and then sent it home with DeeAnn 'cause I had to go back to work. But after work I finally got to open it! Have a look-see:
A David Sedaris book! I've never even heard of this one, but I'm excited to read it. And I actually will read it, despite DeeAnn saying I won't. Shut up, DeeAnn. Taryn wrote a nice little message inside the book, too, but I didn't take a picture of that because I forgot.
Surprise! It's a rabbit! That jumps! You wind it up, put it down, and it hops around. It accidentally hopped off the table and hit Hera in the face. I don't think she took too kindly to that. DEAL WITH IT, CAT.
Taryn obviously paid attention to the whole thing in my survey about loving gummy candies. I've never seen gummy pigs before, but Percy Pig and Piglets are delicious. And those gummy worms came in awesome flavors like kiwi and blackcurrant. I don't even know what a blackcurrant looks like, but the gummy worm version of it tastes wonderful. Mmmmmm.
Thank you so much, Taryn! This is the first time I've received an international Secret Santa package, and you totally delivered!
DeeAnn and Hera would also say thank you, but they're tuckered out beneath a blanket. Poor girls.
