So I have a little story for ya... Many years ago I had alittle shop. I was one of 35 shops under one roof. The boys were small... say 5 & 7 give or take at the time. I only had to work one day a week. We all took turns covering the whole shop.... So, one day a week I needed someone to watch the boys after school. My GF Cindy said she would as the boys were all good friends, so it worked out great...With me? wondering where this is going????
So the first year they are decorated for Christmas the boys are all there and Eric goes right for their tree and opens this little mailbox... In there is a piece or 2 of candy from the elves, if he has been good that day! SIGH... LOL.... Eric tells them how the "elves" have been here because he has been good!
Steven as the story goes, being his so called adorable self...LOL... says to Ms. Cindy will you make one for me and Alex so the elves can visit us???
OF COURSE! So as I pick the boys up that night I am told of these mail boxes and quietly how I need to go get candy to keep them filled each day if they are good.... OK.....Now when they are little and you see the EXCITEMENT for these mail boxes of course one does it!.....
Here is where the problem goes with these darn mail boxes! LOL!... As they get into High School... Every year I forget about them, until they come out and the boys get excited! Now, yes, I am thrilled that they still get excited! If you ask the boys, YES they BELIEVE!!! very important in this house... ANYWAY... the annoying part is that Eric, Cindy's son has all but forgotten about the mail box by HS... or she forgets to put candy in it... So every year I give her a nasty call...This year a nasty text as the tree went up on thanksgiving and out came the mailboxes and at 22 & 24 I was told I BETTER NOT SLACK ON THE MAILBOXES! LOL
