A few weekends ago, Tad and I went to his work holiday party. We were to bring a white elephant gift worth about $10. I put together a package of all kinds of goodies: a tin of enlighten-mints, candy, and some novelty items. My favorite item I put in there was a "pickle finger". What is a pickle finger, you might ask. Well, it is a plastic pickle-shaped thing that you can put over your finger. It's fun! It's weird! I love it!
I was relaying this story to everyone in Harald's room at Pleasant Valley Nursing Home last weekend and they just couldn't get over the fact that such a thing existed.
Today, six packages will head out from the post office to Argyle, NY; Baltimore, MD; Madison, WI; . San Francisco, CA; and Chicago, IL. Each will contain a note and a pickle finger.
