I was on my way to the Post Office, the other day, happily carrying a pizza box and minding my own business, when a friend jumped out of a shop doorway.
"I'll have a slice," he said. "Is it pepperoni?"
Then he spotted the look on my face.
"Hold on, that's not pizza at all. Is it? You are using the pizza box as a cunning disguise. There could be anything in there...are you smuggling?"
Smuggling? No, just scrapbooking. I explained it to him, a little, and I think he got it because he grabbed his phone and started showing me his instagram pictures of his cats. Which just shows how many of us really are interested in recording things and photographing and taking note of what's going on around us.
I haven't had a similar conversation on the return trip. Yet. The Postman has been delivering pizza boxes to our door for several years now and he has never questioned the lack of tempting cheese aroma or the coldness of the box. Maybe he's distracted by the big smile on my face. Whether it's a box of new supplies, or the return of a page or two from Scrap365, every pizza box is very welcome.
Anyone else's postman show an interest?
