nein, nein, nein, 99

It's arrived.

Postmarked Anaheim, CA, with a return address of The Elves, Disneyland, the annual mysterious parcel was delivered via Canada Post. A truck, in fact. There is a import declaration on one side, signed with an unfamiliar name.

It was eight maids a-milking who arrived last year, but I can't for the life of me remember what comes after eight. Nine, obviously, but nine what?

I'm hoping it's cupcakes.

The mystery continues.

This is such a great, ongoing story!

And it's nine ladies dancing, I believe - just what you've always wanted!!!

I soooo love this ongoing mystery! Ooh nine ladies dancing? This should be interesting.

Nine ladies dancing. I say you start it off, and just start dancing yourself. This is such a fun mystery to keep up with each year!

Obviously we are going to have to put on a house show, WC, but where are we going to put all those ladies?

I am amazed that this has continued all these years, Karen. Somebody is focused!

Good advice, Lesley. I'll start doing the shortbread dance in the kitchen this afternoon.

I don't know. It's a pretty small box. No air holes. I shudder to think of the condition of those ladies.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

The stripper poles must be arriving in its own box, Kelly. I need to keep an eye out for it because strippers without their poles are not at all merry, just plain sad.

O lawd, you're right, John! I need to open that box right away. Outside.

@ John - Ha ha ha!

I had completely forgotten about the annual mysterious package! I'm feeling more festive already. ;)

I had rather forgotten about it as well, Al. To be honest I am rather terrified to see what happens the year after 12.
