Boxes Boxes Everywhere
I just addressed twenty-two flat rate priority boxes to send to Iraq. Twenty-two boxes take up more space than I had actually considered. But I found out that even though you have to fill out a custom form, since the FPO addresses all have zip codes, the post office treats them like domestic mail. I included a custom form with each box so people could fill them out and not get the post office and find out there that they had to (as I did. In fact, the next time I mailed something to Jason, I had forgotten about the customs forms and had to fill it out at the post office again. The forms are brain dead easy--my last one listed the contents as 'snacks and cookies'.)
I am feeling insufferably virtuous about all of this.
From behind him, an amused voice said thoughtfully, "Scramble." And he's been Scramble Campbell ever since.
