No, I didn’t say, “The check’s in the mail.” And I’m not referring to mail-order brides, either.
This morning, when I went to the post office, two women were standing in the entry chatting. One of them was holding a box full of chicks. Even though I couldn’t see the chicks, I could certainly tell they were in there because they were cheeping to beat the band. While it may seems strange to mail chicks, this is a common practice. It’s how my sister receives the chicks she purchases. How else would those who raise chickens get chicks if they don’t breed chicks themselves? Run to the grocery store? Have you ever seen a live chick department in Wal-Mart? Now that would be weird.
