I ordered this package of d-rings and miscellaneous
handbag hardware from an etsy shop in Thailand
on the last day of January. Two weeks later, I had
about lost hope of ever receiving it. At that point, I
realized that I'm accustomed to getting things in the mail
within a few days of ordering them! In fact, I sometimes
receive an order the next day -- before I even start
looking forward to it coming! This brought to mind
the good ol' days, where anything ordered would take
6-8 weeks to arrive. SIX TO EIGHT WEEKS!!!
That's forty-two to fifty-six days of anticipation.
Do you remember checking the mailbox every day for
weeks on end? And then finally getting what you've been
waiting for? I kind of miss that rhythm of life.
At least we still have rebates.
