Once I did see it, though, it caught my attention. Sure enough, it was a mailbag. What's more, it wasn't just any mailbag, it was a mailbag from Germany. Could this be the real thing? Well, this time I slowed down and checked the packing slip. No sense getting all excited about nothing. Sure enough, this was it—well at least half of it. The packing slip said that there were two boxes, but only one arrived today.
I cut the ropes on the mailbag, pulled the box out of the mailbag, cut it open. Drat, double box again! So, I managed to open the bottom of the box instead of the top, but hey, nothing was damaged, so who cares. There they were, in three rows, the latest fascicle of BHQ. I opened the shrink wrap on one of them and began looking through it. I promise you that I didn't drool on it :)
So, for those of you waiting with bated breath, standing orders will ship tomorrow.
