I tend to not get overly excited about things. I’m a pretty chilled out lady. But, last night I *squeeeeeeeeed* in delight when I opened my mail. Then, I jumped around my apartment a few times and clapped my hands. It was a big moment. The trigger?
You’ll see why.
My friend Amanda is one uber festive lady with brains, brawn, and beauty (to mention a few). Not only that, but she has something I could never dream of possessing: craftiness. She came up with the idea to pass a box around as a means of keeping in touch.
Catch my drift? Basically…SPECTACULAR!!!
We started this game in college, but the first box was lost amongst drunken frat nights or cram sessions or ultimate frisbee tourneys. In any case, it was gone. I was the first recipient the second time around.
The next item is key to the success of the box: a stack of addresses of those participating in The Box Game.
I simply grab an address, fill the box, write a note, and mail it on.
I highly recommend this if you have a group of friends you don’t get to see that often, but would love to stay in touch with.
Also, I NEVER smoke! Gross! BUUUUUT the box seemed to warrant a special occasion. Plus, I was missing my friend, and he would appreciate a smoke in his honor. (I obviously never smoke because I bought the wrong pack and was outraged when I found out a pack cost over 6 bucks. The HORROR!)
p.s. How do you stay in touch? It’s hard, I’d love to hear tips!
