There wasn’t anything good on television the other night which left me looking for things to do which is why I re-visited the Toys R Us website. It was midnight with Paypal only a click away.
Sooo…..Remember my last post when I confessed to ordering 40 of the foil-wrapped critter cookie cutters even though I knew telling you would probably result in a significant number of you thinking to yourself, “Now that’s a little excessive!”
The thing is, 40 really isn’t all that excessive when you compare it against, oh, I don’t know. Silent pause. Maybe when you compare it to ordering 100 foil-wrapped critter cookie cutters. After you’ve already purchased 40. And it’s midnight. And Paypal is only a click away.
And so it happened that last night the UPS driver knocked on our door with a small brown box and in that box were 100 more foil-wrapped Little Miss Muffin Surprise Pets.
I lack all impulse control.
With 100 little bundles of obsessive-behavior spread out on the table before me I picked up one lone package and opening it with a pair of scissors (I nearly uprooted a molar ripping open the original 40), I looked inside and what did I see?
Go ahead and guess. Go with your gut. Trust your inner voice.
The very first critter cutter freed from it’s shiny prison was the very one I was missing. . .
the cat! The Cat in the Pack!
How perfectly serendipitous!
Refer to previous post if perfectly serendipitous sailed right over your head.
And so after I tucked the kitty away securely in my cookie cutter storage with the original cast of eleven, I commenced to opening the rest.
Okay, okay. Maybe it’s a just a tad excessive by a smidge or two.
Or a hundred.
But don’t judge me because this kind of obsessive need for cookie cutters is a win for my therapist and a win for you because all the cutters you see before you . . . I’m giving away.
Maybe to you!
So here’s all you need to do to enter. Just add a comment below guessing the number of complete sets of 12 critter cutters that were in that heaping full box of 100 packages. How many complete sets do you think there are? You have until I finish my morning coffee on Friday to enter your guess and at that time or at least after I’ve showered and dressed (in something snappy no doubt) I’ll randomly choose as many winners from those who guessed the correct number as I have complete sets to give away.
One entry per person and the contest is limited to those parts of the world that don’t require filling out a customs forms when shipping from the U.S.
I hate filling out customs forms.
