Yesterday we drove past the Post Office and Laylee had the chance to witness more mail trucks than she had EVER SEEN IN HER LIFE! Glory be! It was a lovely sight.
Laylee: Mom! Look at all those mail trucks!
Me: Wow! That is awesome.
Laylee: Where do all the mail truck people sleep at night?
Me: Well, they go home and sleep in regular beds just like regular people. Delivering mail is just their job like daddy has a job at Megacorp but then they go home and sleep.
Laylee: [sounding like the mail truck people had gone down a notch in her opinion, now that I’d outed them as mere mortals] Oh. [rallying her support] They are SO nice because they put packages in everybody’s mailbocks. I wonder if they put a package in our mailbock today?!
Me: Let’s go check our BOCK AND SEE!!
the reasons: red leaves, paper bags with handles, people who drive with their dog’s head sticking out the window so Magoo can lose his very mind
