This is my latest mail order item...that itty, bitty purple rectangular box. Can you see it? Look closely. It's on top of the ENORMOUSLY INEFFICIENT FedEx box that it arrived in. If ever there was an analogy for Federal Government/health care reform/the National Deficit/Bureaucracy and taxes to pay for entitlement programs, compared to actual necessity/overstepping it's bounds/the ability to pay for social programs/inefficiency in execution...this right here is it.

So there you are, folks. Today's political commentary.

(postscript~Husband thought I was suggesting that FedEx is government subsidized or owned. Nay~just using this as an object lesson for inefficiency.)

Whoa...hold on there missy...them were some mighty big words for lil' ol' me to understand!

You know if they would have shipped it in a smaller box rather that the GIANT envelope, it would have gotten lost!

Sooooo.....what's in the little purple box? Something you need to go camping with, perhaps?

How could that cute little purple box make you feel so political Lisa?
I received a fed ex today, much much bigger...and full of our favorite things...purses, beach bags,hanging make-up bags in fun colors... little totes... will have to blog them over the week-end.

Didn't make me feel political...not one bit.

Are you going to make us wait to see what was in that cute little purple probably cost more than my big box...I'll let you know when you decide to share.

Maybe they ran out of smaller envelopes. Maybe smaller envelopes haven't been invented. That is our niche, Lisa, let's invent smaller envelopes that won't get lost. Let's invent efficiency. BTW, I'm for a national healthcare - just not the one Obama proposes. Long story. Maybe I'll blog about it.

Well so now it's up to you to save the world... And make a craft out of the box:o)

I so totally get it. Overspend, overdo, overkill. Government. Looks like a pregnancy test to me. Mimi

Lisa said...

Oh my heck, Mimi! You slay me! Now THAT would be funny...especially if I ordered it rather than ran to my nearest drugstore. Yeah, no.

And maybe I WILL make a craft out of the box. Or I'll send it to YOU to make a craft out of. But FIRST, I'll package it in a refrigerator box.
