Three houses ago, the thing I loved the most about our house was the neighborhood and the neighbors. One neighbor in particular…let’s call her….Mary…is STILL being particularly neighborly…even as she moves this week several states away from the house I remember her moving into! Behold the awesome neighborliness from the flurry of July emails copied & pasted below:
TADA!!!!! One pair of L, green, ruffle-y slippers is yours =0)!!!
As it happened, I was cooling my heels waiting for JKid and his friend at Zap Zone in Canton when I got your message. So when they finished and I dropped DFriend off at his house, we zoomed over to downtown Plymouth. A spot opened up right in front of the store and I saw the slippers!!! A choir of angels started singing….the rest is history!
I told the gal behind the counter I was on mission, read a bit of your message so she would know the magnitude of this mission. She laughed and said she had been waiting 4 months for these to come in.
I got a pair, too, just to feel connected to you and be as styling as you!
Then the gal then said she remembered you when I described you as as all bubbly, always wearing some cute, signature piece of jewelry. ” I know her!”, and I said, “Yeah. She’s my friend =0)” And I was happy.
The kids and I went to Starbucks after (because it is that bed store just a few shops away) and I bought an extra drink for P-Dude, who had been at home all day. M-Boy said, “Is that for Mrs. Automatic7?”
Gotta dash…someone wants to come look at the house tonight!
(then from me again)
ARE THEY NOT THE CUTEST EVER?!?!?!?!
I am soo so so so SOOOOOOOOOOO happy!
And ever so impressed that you GOT that message and so immediately and excellently completed your mission with such intense focus and speed! As I said, just to know that they are HAD is almost quite enough for me. To imagine them on the way to me is icing AND sprinkles on the chocolate chip marble cake, and to see them in person will be almost more than I can bear in this lifetime. I can SO picture your darling tootsies in them! What shade of pedicure…hmmm…rose perhaps? With a sparkle? Maybe a french pedi? Oooh la la! We will have to coordinate toenails, nay, entire OUTFITS and PURSES to complete the ensemble, no?
Thank you eternally for doing this for me while packing, showing your home and toting various and sundry children to and fro. And thanks to M-Boy for knowing you would potentially do such a thing as ADD a Starbucks TO that lovely errand for Mrs. Auto7. That warms my heart to NO end!
Oh, how you ROCK!!!!
I do believe this is a blogworthy story…don’t you?
AND HERE THEY ARE!!!! See how happy they are to be loved They are even cuter than I remembered!
I can hardly wait for them to get here!!!
