Received the loveliest email earlier today. When my girl visited her aunt in Washington, D. C. in July, her aunt took her to a little diner called “Ted’s Bulletin” the first night she was there. Jami loved the food and was especially impressed by their homemade pop tarts. So much so, that when she flew home a few days later, they stopped by to pick up a few “to go” for her to bring home to us.
The pop tarts were so yummy that I scoped out their website and ended up sending them an email to say how much we enjoyed them, and how we hoped to visit the diner in person someday when we visit my sister-in-law. They replied that they were glad we enjoyed them, and they hoped to meet us in person someday.
But that’s not the email that I’m referred to . . . a second, unexpected email arrived today requesting our mailing address. It seems that Ted’s Bulletin may be considering the sale of homemade pop tarts by mail order. They need to test shipping methods, to see if the pop tarts will arrive at their destinations still looking like pop tarts, or just a box of sad pop tart crumbs. So Ted’s Bulletin is mailing us some pop tarts and would like our feedback on how the pop tarts look when they arrive, and how they taste.
Maybe I should get a t-shirt that says “Ted’s Bulletin Pop Tart Shipping Research Analyst” or “Ted’s Bulletin Pop Tart Shipping Tester” . . .
Really looking forward to that box of homemade pop tart goodness.
