Pass the Quackers!! Please.

My walk home from work today was far from routine. The usual four-mile route was riddled with obstacles, leaving me no choice but to make detours. Along the way, I was harassed by people trying to sell me video iPods, people asking for directions, and people making some rather unmentionable requests. Seriously! On a normal day I can walk along the esplanade, next to the river. It is quiet and scenic. Today was the exact opposite. With the annual Rose Festival going on, some minor construction, and a bunch of other nonsense, it took me much longer to reach the solace of my apartment. By the time I put my key in the door, I was hungry, moody, and tired. But something changed all of that…something that was waiting patiently for me in my mailbox…something from Celine! I ran upstairs with my last wee bit of energy, slammed my door and collapsed on the futon. Holding the package, I couldn’t help but think “Please be a treat, please be a treat, please be a treat…(greedlessly of course)”

It was a treat! Packaged so carefully in one of the biodegradable bags I sent Celine were Cheezy Quackers! Just what I needed! There was, however, a delay. A sticker on the packaging was warning me: DO NOT OPEN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. I contemplated what to do. And then I opened the bag and ate about two dozen quackers. These savory crackers are incredibly addictive. Thank you so much Celine, for the awesome gift!

  1. dude, it’s crazy: I was on my daily walk earlier and some guy started calling me the dirtiest names out of the forking blue. what is it with people and wanting to harass us so much? must have been something in the water. I’m sorry they felt the need to bug you when all you wanted was to go home and be left alone.
    I’m glad you like the quackers and the card! hooray for it arriving rather promptly too. USPS has to make up for a lot of crapola.

  2. Awww, surprise packages are the best! I showed my sister the Cheesy Quackers and she really wants to make them now.

    I like your blog! I’m surprised I don’t have a link to it yet in mine. Changing that right now!

  3. Sounds like an adventurous walk!! I hate it when my walk can’t be peaceful :0(

    Ahhh, delicious quackers and a gorgeous photograph – perfect package from Celine!! :0)

  4. Awww! Sounds like Celine’s quackers were a godsend! And they’re so cute! I know what you mean about the annoying people making “unmentionable requests.” Downtown Memphis is the same way!

  5. Teheee … I really like this post, esp the part where you say “Please be a treat, please be a treat, please be a treat…”! :0) Celine’s ‘quackers’ looks so delicious, I really wanna make it now!!
