Thou shall not steal.

Get a load of this. This is so funny.
Gian and I took the girls to swim lessons and when we got home our mailman got the surprise of his life. Let me explain.
Most of you know, we live in a back house. In order to get to our house you have go past the front house and up the driveway. Right next to our driveway in the back is a big play yard with our playstructure and other toys....along with a very large avocado tree.
So back to today. Gian and I and the girls drove up the driveway and there was the mailman getting off the ladder, quickly I might add, from picking avocados. He had this total deer in the headlights look on his face-it was soOoOoO funny!!! He picked up his mailbag and mail that he had set down on the playstructure...moved the ladder (our ladder) back to the side of the garage...all with a look of guilt on his face. I got out of the car and all I could say was, "Oh, I hope this means we get better mail service now!" He tried to make some small talk, like "oh did you go to the beach" and "I only got two avocados". I just laughed at him and hustled the girls inside. He then went over to Gian and said, "Please don't call the Post Office on me". Can you say
I didn't call the Post Office (and I don't plan on it)...the poor guy needs a job.....and some avocados, apparently!?!
I am totally still laughing about it! The look of guilt on his face was priceless!

I am laughing sooo hard! I think that is the funniest story! He probably went home and made some guacamole (spell?) while thinking of you! How sad!!! =0 I'm sure he he was so excited couldn't wait for the day that you'd be gone! Hilarious! LOL!!! I worked for the post office and they are bruital! They would've written him up for sure on that one.

Such a funny story! If you have more avacados than you know what to do with we'll trade you nectarines from our tree.
