Shipping Drunk on Chocolate

Sounds like a b-grade indie film doesn't it? Shipping Drunk on Chocolate.
The first photo is how my packaging/shipping area looks normally.
Neat. Tidy. Organized. An assembly line of professionalism. I pride myself on my packaging and shipping. I think it makes an impression people do not soon forget.
The second photo is how my shipping area looked like the other day. Askew is putting it mildly.
The third photo is the reason why. German Chocolate with Champagne.

You have to be a complete light weight in the alcohol area, I mean not having indulged in months and months.
You also have to have an empty stomach and be a chocolate binge eater.
And lastly, most importantly, have a good friend in Germany who surprises you with alcoholic chocolates!
If all those things are in place you too could find yourself surprisingly buzzed while packaging orders for shipping.

I didn't even know what was happening.

I stood there swaying, trying to tie strings onto my little free mini tags and having a hell of a time. There was no order. No 2nd step after the 1st step, 3rd step after the 2nd step kind of flow to the whole ordeal. It was comical. And it took forever to finish.

But finish I did and everyone's package was together and in the mail in time!

Thank you, Eva! It was a most enjoyable learning experience!


  1. Oh! I didn`t know that there is even so much alcohol in it! But I`m happy You enjoyed the buzz!

  2. I don't think there IS that much, I think I ate too many, too fast on an empty stomach!HeeHee!

  3. That's so funny! I'm going to add you to my blog roll! (I found you through a comment on Stephanie's blog!:)

  4. This is so funny. A couple of necklaces I have created have resulted from a couple of Chiltons. I also created an entire collection from a very nice Margarita.
