A strange day comes to an end

As I sat with Suzie drinking wine served by Mel I told her how my day was one of the strangest of my life. Of course I started my story with how it began and how the life of an accountant is just hours of boredom. As the evening shadows lengthened and the story turned to how I came to be sitting here sipping some great wine with her and Mel.

Since the day was drawing to a close I took my leave and began the walk to home. A block form home I saw a UPS truck pulling away from my front door. I hadn’t ordered anything in a long while, so that truck dropping off a package baffled me. What could it be? Well-trimmed Boxwoods surround my front door. Keeping them trimmed is my of my eccentricities, I sculpt them every three or 4 months.

I started up the walk and was astonished to see the UPS driver had dropped off a Jack-O-Lantern It sat there grinning at me. It was completely carved with a lighted candle. A fitting way to end a day that started off the way it did. What will happen tomorrow?
