Which Reminds Me

Yesterday's post reminded me of a story my sister Emily once told me about a friend of hers. Several years ago, around Easter, he sent a large spanner and a broken Easter egg to a well-known commercial chocolatier, claiming that he had found the large spanner inside the much smaller egg.

Instead of laughing at the silliness of his practical joke, they sent him a card of apology and a basket full of eggs.

Your sister has a lovely voice. I've been listening to her songs all morning!

And I love it that they sent an apology.

Have you done any practical jokes of late?

I put ice cubes in PJ's bed, which was kind of silly of me, as I share it with him.
