But You Can’t Curl Up with a Terabyte

We got a package from Amazon today. Bookgirl was excited, since she was waiting for a book she’d ordered. To our bewilderment, though, it was instead a $77 1-terabyte backup drive. We finally realized that our orders must have been switched with someone else’s, and we got this item by mistake.

And then we all howled with laughter at the thought of the computer geek who received his Amazon package and eagerly ripped into it for his backup drive… only to find a $6 copy of “Eight Cousins” by Louisa May Alcott.
