Stuff that arrived in the mail today:
1) A coupon from Right by Nature.
2) Address labels from a charity I haven’t given money to for years.
No. 3 was something of a surprise, because I didn’t order it and Mrs. Crappy said she didn’t either. It’s a really nice jersey — all the stuff that comes with one of the NFL Authentics — and I have no idea where it came from.
I assume this is someone’s reaction to my questions last week about my NFL fandom; maybe whoever sent this wanted to reinforce my decision to stay with my Browns, no matter how ugly things get.
Those would be decent reasons for the why; I still don’t have any idea about the who. I have some guesses in mind (coughfredahem) but they are just that — guesses — at this point.
To my benefactor: Thank you. It means a lot. And I am totally wearing this on Super Bowl Sunday.
DISCLOSURE: I know I’m supposed to disclose gifts I’ve received because of my blog, so I suppose I need to say that here. This jersey, apparently, was a gift. But I don’t know who I’m thanking, which makes this disclosure a little weird. Sorry about that.
Brown is totally your color.
It feels even better than it looks.
Hey! Weren’t you an All-American in Foster’s & Labatts back in college?
Ever find out who it came from?
Nope. I saw a couple of the most likely suspects last weekend and both seemed sincere in their denials.
