I love it when books arrive in the mail.
But there is a LOT of packaging. From an environmental point of view, that is bad. From a reader’s point of view, it is exasperating. Some boxes and mailers can opened with ease, others require scissors and swearing. And what to do with the packaging? When DH is away, I smuggle it out to the recycling bin, à la I Love Lucy. Why? He thinks everything should now be on the e-reader.
But there are others who revel in book mail days.
The white cat comes first to investigate.
Why would anyone throw that box out? Hm, I could use that.
Fascinated by a book mailer, the black cat wonders if she can tear off the tab of paper at the top.
The white cat continues her investigation with the black cat’s help.Oh, lord, they say of the smushed cardboard mailer in the middle. That is completely useless!
A black kitten joins them and pushes her way into the box.. She doesn’t know there is a hierarchy.
They watch with amazement as she hops into the box.
She is just adorable!
The big black cat walks away while the black kitten sits in the box and the white cat goes back to the other packaging.
Then the white cat lies down to take a nap.
Nothing has been recycled yet! How could it be? This is the only mailer not in demand at the moment! (By the way, this one was easy to open.)
