The professor made a very odd discovery while he was about this past week. He was pleasantly tending his strawberry patch when he found this:
Odd, isn’t it? I think that it is a gift from somebody, but it’s all very vexing. Any ideas?
Now, I must share with you…a…something.
The professor has been finding his mail strewn about the street as of late. You see, his mailbox rests close to the road.
Now, of course, this is an interest. After all, it’s either an accident or prank or curious happenstance. So, the professor waited around for the mail truck.
Sure enough the beast came by, but when he stopped at my mailbox, and took a quick look inside, he grimaced, then growled. And then he did the unthinkable:
He dropped the professor’s mail straight onto the road. The beast was about to drive away, when the professor jumped from hiding, and confronted him.
“Sir, I say wait!”
The beast craned his neck out of his mail truck. “What you want?”
“You’ve just dropped my mail onto the road instead of putting it where it belongs, and you’ve been doing this for the better part of a week!”
The beast laughed. “Once you clear the hornet’s nest from your mailbox, I’ll put mail in it. Once you care about me, I’ll care about you. I’ve been stung twice by that nest, and I won’t be stung again!”
With that, he drove off.
Of course, I looked into the mailbox, and…lo and behold…the largest hornet nest ever! Definitely too big to tackle now—maybe in the winter.
So, the professor got a new mailbox and put it five feet away from the other one. I really hope that the beat will be nicer now.
I suppose the moral of this tale is to watch and see if your mailbox is inhabited…
Now, I’d like to say one more thing, dear Punchy Family, before the photo.
If you can tell me what PL’er is on the header, all the way to the right, you can decide what characters you’d like to see interact in a future skit. Up to three characters, preferably.
Now, that dadblame disturbing picture:
I have said that that shrub reminds me of me, but do you notice what else is there? Humdinger! (You may need to zoom in!)
