Yesterday was cold and rainy in the ATX.
Im not complaining. Given our lack of rain the past year it was a welcome change and the perfect day to not exit the domicile and get lot of work finished.
Mid-day the doorbell rang (and rang and rang) and it was the UPS man.
I figured he needed me to sign for a package, but when I opened the door he said sheepishly:
No signature for this one. Im just curious what’s inside. All day it has been saying (insert words from video snippet below) and it made me laugh. What is it?!
Given the close relationship he and I have (one to which all other bloggers can relate Im sure) I invited him into the kitchen and ripped into the box.
Inside was a product promotion and this:
A random button (with an on & off switch thank goodness) which each time you press bestows upon you some Sweet Talking Ken-like words.**
I tried to convince the UPS man to keep it (he admitted it had made him smile throughout his day) but he refused.
The Tornado, however, was happy to appropriate it as her own.
She ambled around Austin all afternoon button-pressing and announcing to friends & strangers alike:
Hold on. I have a compliment for you!
It made me smile.
It made her giggle.
It caused more than a few weather-grumpy folks to reluctantly let out a laugh.
She’s already up and at it (if by ‘it’ you mean running around pressing the WOW button which I do) and we’re heading out for breakfast.
Look for us Austin.
We’re bearing four second compliments.
And we’re looking for you!
**I never did figure out how this linked in with the product promo. anyone else receive this ‘treat?’
