Once upon a blog, there was a damsel in distress named Hillary. Hillary lived in a land far, far away called Canada. In this far away land, sweets grew abundantly....over hill and dale and mountain trail. Maple sugar can(ada)dy, chocolate covered pretzels, Purdy's Hedgehogs and milk chocolate maple leaves simply grew on trees. But Hillary couldn't enjoy this can(ada)dy as her wedding to Prince Shawn was approaching and the buttfaces at the labeling company wanted to charge her a king's ransom for shipping charges to Canada. How would her jam jars be labeled? Would she have to resort to masking tape and a Sharpie? NOWAYJOSE! She simply called upon her US-residing bloggity-buddy, Over-Thinker, to do some creative shippage-ing and all was right in the land!
To thank her (in a VERY unnecessarily generous way, mind you), Hillary put together a kick-ass Canada Care-Package fit for a queen! A queen that is now pre-diabetic because HELLO, you obviously HAVE TO eat ALL of the can(ada)dy at once. Hillary also included some non-can(ada)dy fare: A keychain (somehow missing its key to Canada), her bitchin' CD mix for summer, a greeting card (filled out while tipsy) and the accessory everyone will be wearing this fall:
A FELT HAT
(Notice C in the background. Moments before, he asked, "Now, I'm not going to be in this picture, am I?" Heh--my mad-accidental camera skills strike again.)
Check out this haul!
In case you can't see....Just behind the fantastic low-lighting and shadows is SUGAR!!!!! and SUGAR!!!!!! and a felt hat!!!!
Moral of the story? If Hillary asks you to do a favor, say yes because she'll spoil you silly and make you a Canadian. Because you automatically become Canadian when you put a felt maple leaf on your head.
