The continuing saga of the blue scooter

Forays into the WalZoo yielded a blue scooter, but not the style I wanted for S. (plus it was another $10 - yes, I'm cheap). Christmas morning, S. received a red scooter and was pretty darn ecstatic. Of course, the Ariel helmet and assorted pads helped relieve some of the pain.

Three guesses what we found on our front door step when we got home yesterday... The mysterious 'lost in shipping' scooter unlosted itself and arrived just a little too late. Me being the obnoxiously honest person that I am gave Amazon a call to ask about getting their scooter back to them. The (very nice) customer service rep thought my situation was pretty funny and told me to mark the unopened box 'Return to Sender.' I told her it may be a week before we can get to the post office, and she was okay with it.

It's funny how the US mail works. Mail comes in and out of Waco in a big hurry. People have received packages and letters way sooner than I anticipated when I go into Waco to send them. My little bitty town, on the other hand is the land of the late, late, late mail. I know for a fact that the mail for Waco and our town is sorted at the same sorting center thingy, so why does it take an extra 3-5 days for us to get our mail? Inquiring minds want to know.

Well, I did wonder what happened with the blue scooter! Thanks for the update. I am glad S loves it, even if it is red.

I was wondering as well! Thanks for updating. L always makes a color request too but is usually really happy with what he gets.
