The Creation of a Fun Surprise

1. Find something that seems JUST RIGHT for a Certain Person (this is generally the hardest part).

2. Notice there is a coupon AND the item qualifies for free shipping!

3. Wonder if you might not be the only one who thinks this would be an EXCELLENT surprise for Certain Person, if only everyone else knew about it!

4. Realize that NOT ONLY is this thing JUST RIGHT for a Certain Person, but it would ALSO make a WONDERFUL Valentine's Day Package!

5. Email everyone you think might like to be involved in a fun surprise (and whose email address you have).

6. Keep track of the people who are participating so you know how many packages you are waiting for.

7. Anticipate strange look from your mail-delivery person when you receive 12 identical packages over 1-2 days.

8. Open packages and check packing information so that you can make sure you have received everything that's been sent and properly label each item with its sender's name.

9. Wrap some additional presents, include large amounts of chocolate, write an explanatory card, and send the box.

10. Email everyone who participated to let them know that the box is ON ITS WAY!!!

11. Stalk the box's progress.

12. Enjoy a Certain Person's surprise when the box arrives =).

Also, now I am suddenly laughing imagining what World Market must have thought was going on. "What on EARTH??"---as people from ALL OVER THE PLACE each order one single towel to be sent to the same address!

I wondered that too =)! I was half-afraid they were going to email someone who was trying to order and say "WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!"

I love that you managed to arrange such a big surprise, what a fantastic story it made (and it was so fun to see you both write about it!) :)

HAHAHA, also, it looks like the item is no longer in stock! Maybe you guys bought them all! ;)
