It's convenient for me that Paul Drewes now works at KITV. Never mind the fact that it's a good job for him, or a nice place to work, or anything like that. No, it's because my neighbor also works at channel 4, and we've turned her into our personal mule.
Before, I sat right next to him at work and we could leave stuff for each other on our desks, even when our schedules changed and we no longer shared any shifts. We live far enough apart to make it inconvenient to see each other, and having young families, we have too many scheduling obligations to make it easy to visit more than once a quarter.
So there's Trish. For two years, Trish has kindly ferried items for us.
Random things that have changed hands from Diane to Paul, or the reverse, include:
Cupcakes for kids' birthdays
A hand me down water feature
Amputated arm (plastic, for Halloween)
Light up skulls (also borrowed for decorations)
Some people have the US Postal Service. Some use UPS or Fed Ex. We have Trish. Thankfully, she's OK with it. Maybe we need to tip her for Christmas?
