I have the best blog-friends! Gryphon went to the post office today, and when he came back he said, with a slightly puzzled voice, “Were you expecting a package from Valerie?”
Um…no. He then handed me a box. Sure enough, the return address was Valerie’s. And when I opened it…
Asian treats! Yay!
Valerie’s note said that she’s been at the Asian grocery and wanted to send me a little New Year’s treat basket as a sort of pick-me-up, for all the rough times that Gryphon and I have been going through. How sweet – and appropriate! I’ve been missing my Asian goodies, because our Asian market is fairly far away and not near anyplace else we ever shop, so I haven’t been there in months.
Valerie sent five (five!) boxes of Pocky; a package of one of my favorite classic treats, Botan Rice Candy; a box of another Glico (makers of Pocky) snack called Collon, which is actually a cylindrical creme-filled biscuit that I’ve never found yet and am eager to try; and a five-slice Gummi Pizza that looks like a lot of fun.
I’m going to do my best to dole this out and savor it slowly to make it last.
Thank you, Valerie! I’m so excited, and you’re so very sweet and thoughtful!
