Please, Mister Postie

I'm back in the "real world" -- well almost. Need those few days to detatch and decompress.

06 05 27 Mailbox



Well...apart from bills and offers for free gym memberships (as if!) and a lottery win (as long as I provide my passport and bank account numbers), my mailbox is empty. Not even a note from the Postie to let me know there was something at the post office for me (and yes, we checked the post office, just in case...nothing there).

:(

No Canadian Blogging By Post giftie for me .
I think I may be the last one waiting for my CBBP package.

:(

I've received overseas packages in less time than I've waited for this box a few provinces away...and Canada Post wonders why many people have switched to email and private courier companies?

I mean, it *could* be late, stuck in a van between here and Alberta; it could have been delivered to the wrong address; it could have been be on its way back, returned as undeliverable, but without a tracking number we can only guess where that box is.

So, what's a gal to do?

Well, parody another classic and hope that this magic will work and I'll get the box soon. Cross your fingers...

With apologies to W. Garrett, B. Holland, F. Gorman, G. Dobbins, R. Bateman and The Carpenters:

(Stop)
Oh yes, wait a minute Mister Postie
(Wait)
Wait Mister Postie

Please Mister Postie, look and see
(Oh yeah)
If there's a parcel in your truck for me
(Please, Please Mister Postie)
Why's it takin' such a long time
(Oh yeah)
For my C B B P box so fine?

There must be some treats today
From a blogpal so far away
Please Mister Postie, look and see
If there's a parcel, a parcel for me

I've been bloggin' here waitin' Mister Postie
So patiently
For a box, or padded envelope
With some yummy goodies just for me

(Mister Postie)
Mister Postie, look and see
(Oh yeah)
If there's a parcel in your truck for me
(Please, Please Mister Postie)
Why's it takin' such a long time
(Oh yeah)
For me to get a present that’s mine

So many days you passed me by
See the hope fade from my eyes
She wouldn’t have skipped out on her promise
And leave me without a package so nice

(Mister Postie)
Mister Postie, look and see
(Oh yeah)
If there's a parcel in your truck for me
(Please, Please Mister Postie)
Why's it takin' such a long time

(Why don't you check it and see one more time for me, you gotta)
Wait a minute
Wait a minute
Wait a minute
Wait a minute
(Mister Postie)
Mister Postie, look and see

(C'mon deliver the letter, the sooner the better)
Mister Postie

Oh, Jasmine!

While I'm sorry you haven't received your package yet I do have to thank you for such a funny post on a Sunday morning. What a great way to start the day.

Keep the faith ... your package will be there soon!

That's a shame. I really don't like Canada Post.

Ohhhh! I hope you get your package soon.

Paz (who has a feeling that it will be worth the wait)

Oh, you are darn clever. Hope it arrives soon!

Hello all

Thanks for your kind wishes -- I'm sure they are to credit for bringing me my CBBP.
