I often receive boxes in the mail, but this package was unusual.
Because I live in the country shopping online is often more convenient than going to a store. So, it wasn’t unusual when the doorbell rang and the postwoman handed me a box from Amazon.
I turned to my wife and said, “I don’t remember ordering anything this big or this light weight. Did you order something?”
She shook her head.
When I opened the box brown paper was all I saw. I pulled it out. The box appeared empty, but it wasn’t. There, on the bottom, was a tiny white box.
What had I ordered that would fit inside that box? This reminded me of the matryoshka Russian nesting dolls. When I opened I saw that it was a battery for a drone I ordered. When I placed the order I added an extra battery. Amazon shipped that separately—and in a much bigger box than needed.
When the drone arrives I’ll take some pictures with and of it.
