Today, I received a care package from one of my former students (who will remain nameless and blameless). How exciting! Packages from home are always exciting.

I waited until my ten minute break in between classes and then tore into it with gusto to see what had been sent. I struggled for a moment and then was engulfed in a cloud of sparkly blue glitter as the package exploded.

This peach of a student had thoughtfully sent me some candies, pens and stickers (to replace the ones she might have stolen over the years). She even more thoughtfully filled the mailing envelope with the finest blue glitter sold. I was covered from head to toe. My clothes, my jacket, my bag, my chair.

The only thing that could have made it better is if the package had arrived on April 1st. It will take me weeks if not months to get rid of all the glitter. I stood outside for a good ten minutes trying to brush myself off.

I really did appreciate the care package. Thanks TS. And I'm good natured enough to highly recommend the glittered envelope if you're still searching for that perfect April 1st prank. It worked like a charm on me. I'm sure it'll work for you.
