SS: Elmo's Arrival

by - 11/13/2014

My daughter loves Elmo. Most 2 year olds do. So, when it came time for Christmas ideas this year, Elmo definitely made the cut. But which Elmo to pick? Peanut already has 2 small stuffed Elmo dolls, plus Lullaby and Goodnight Elmo. I was thinking about picking up Let's Imagine Elmo, but Mr. Sparkle beat me to it, ordering one that was "almost as big as she is."

So, when the Amazon box came and it was a little smaller than what I was expecting, I figured that Elmo hadn't made this trip. I was wrong. I was sooooooo very wrong.

Vacuum Packed Elmo

 Elmo made it all right.

You've really got to hand it to the employees in Amazon's fulfillment warehouse. Their packing game is totally on point. They've created a whole new level of efficiency*... (*post-it a la moi)

I haven't laughed so hard in a very, very, very long time. I'm almost ashamed to admit that. Almost. Also, I've gotta say, I'm really glad that Peanut didn't get to see him in his "shipped" state. She would've criiiiiiied... oh, the tears that would've flowed while demanding "out, owwwwwttttt!"

Don't worry, though! He puffed back up nicely and only required minimal squishing and smooshing of the head to return to normal.

*No Elmos were seriously hurt during the making of this post. I could've let him out sooner... But where would the fun have been in that?!?
