Doll Hats

Today I posted the pasties to RockerJewlz who won the competition last week. I was given the dreaded customs form to accompany the package at the post office. I couldn’t actually say, pasties on the form, could I?

Had the clerk been handsome, I might have, but instead, he looked like someone who might paid to see pasties before and who had eaten far too many meat pies, so I didn’t want him to have a heart attack. I wrote “craft project” and gave the slip back to him. “Sign there!” he said. Wow, I have to sign this thing!?! The words “Craft Project” stared up at me. Surely that would inspire interest (it would in me) what kind of craft project, hmmm… I didn’t want a customs inspector to open the package and lose one. There’s not much one can do with one pastie.

What wouldn’t arouse suspicion?

Brain wave! Dolls’ hats. And that’s what I wrote on the form. Don't you think they look like dolls hats? What would you have written? Would anyone have been brave enough to write pasties?

Tomorrow - pics from a Lilles adventure in France!

LOL! Doll hats was a quite clever save!

And they kinda look a bit like hats, the very bright, ready to show off hats, I guess!

LOL that's genius! It reminds me of that game where you have to think of 10 possible uses for an item!

How funny and yes they DO look like doll hats! I always write "craft pieces". I figure most men aren't going to care to look at a bunch of pieces of a project that have to be assembled...and even a woman might wonder what would be made with craft pieces, but wouldn't care enough to actually open the package.

So far, so good! And I look forward to my "doll hats".

Love it. When I lived in Prague and my friends (or family) would send me packages from the States I always told them to write toys no matter what the item. My favorite brand of chunky peanut butter? Toys! Refills of my prescription meds? Toys! I think that, in this case, were I in the right mood, I may have written "pasties" but doll hats is perfect!

Once, my oldest friend was writing me a check for some money she owed me and in the "For" section she wrote, "sexual favors." I must confess to having taken that one to the drive thru. LOL

You're quick on your feet! I could have used you as a friend in high school to help come up with excuses and get me out of trouble.
