  • A "What Am I Doing?!" Moment

    I just got back from the post office. I got there before it opened, so I chatted with a very nice postal service employee who was also in the lobby area. All of a sudden, I realized that I was swaying and jiggling the packages in my arms! (My 3-month-old was at home.) After that, I concentrated on maintaining tadasana, or mountain pose in yoga, where you stand up straight.

    I have to add this funny story that the postal service employee insisted was true: in the mid-1980’s, a man mailed a package containing a bomb. He didn’t put enough postage on, but he did put his return address so it came back to him. He’d forgotten what he’d put inside and opened it!

    One last tidbit: Did you know that any theft from the postal service has a fine of up to $25,000 and/or 5 years in federal prison? This came up during our conversation this morning because a woman did not take the 21 cents that someone had left in the stamp machine.
