Interoffice mail

June 5th, 2013

Olivia wants to be a big girl. What I do, she wants to do. I carry a bag, she wants to carry the same bag.

I had to pop into work one weekend and I took her with me. I filled out an interoffice envelope to go to Accounting. She wanted to fill out one.

I had more than one envelope to send, so I told her she could do the second one. I provided her mine as a sample and told her to follow that exactly.

She apparently couldn't read my handwriting, which I can understand. I had read aloud what the words said, but it went by too fast, and she couldn't remember.

So what came out is a little inaccurate. Here's my version as a reference; it says "4/27 - Gene - Acct - Ako", and here's hers.



4/27 - Gene - Acct


Ako - PR

I'm sure the mailman and the guy in Accounting thought something is very strange with this mailing, though it eventually did find its destination.

    Olivia has a great future as a medical doctor. She has already developed her penmanship to the same professional standard required for writing prescriptions, and notes in the patients' charts.

    Cute job, Olivia!

    On another subject, sorry, did you hear about Target's Cocoa Mulch? I read a report that it is toxic to dogs and cats. Just wanted to pass that along to you, since you have critters and it might be something like that might sound tempting to your family with a little girl. It is made by Hershey. The report making the rounds says that most dogs and cats won't touch it, but if they do, it is often fatal.
