I won't talk about male karma, dearies. That would be too depressing (apologies to all males). But mail karma is another thing entirely.
I knew this would happen. A necklace winner from what is, to me, a foreign country. Of course, to them, it is NOT a foreign country. It is their own country, subject to their own usual karma concerning the mail.
A Canadian won. Yes. Calm yerselves, frens!
It's not the expense of mailing to Canada, mind you. It costs no more than to mail here, due to the lightweight nature of the alleged prize. It's the horror of waiting weeks to see if the prize ever got there. You see, the competition between the U.S. and our Good Neighbor to the North is rarely expressed by the cordial folks on both sides of that border. However, it affects the MAIL, causing mail from either country to ACT OUT THE HIDDEN COMPETITION, and become very sulky and refuse to be sorted in a timely manner.
WORSE, sometimes a letter going to or from Canada will purposefully, out of the billions of letters to pass through a machine that year, will PURPOSEFULLY, I say, jam itself up into an accordion-like piece of Mail Origami and cause all sorts of delays. I know that once, when I was innocently attempting to mail some earbobs to Canada, the letter threw itself into a dark corner of the post office in a futile attempt to stay out of Canada, just out of spite! I spotted it writing "Flammable -Dangerous- Poisonous-Liquid-Fragile-Verboten-Potentially Hazardous" on its dorsal surface with a broken crayon.
Oh, the winner? BERNIE, m'dear, YOU are the Winning Canadian. The necklace will look quite festive during all four days of your Canadian Summer.

Blogger never picks up my lil' posts anyway, so why be specific?
I thought this image of fairies engaged in some sort of poker game with very disgruntled koalas was downright strange. But it "spoke" to me. Or maybe it "spooked" me. I don't know. It gets bigger when clicked. I love playing poker.
