Last year when I was making out Christmas cards I noticed that the card we had sent an old friend of Craig's was returned the year before (I keep a list, okay?). Being the sleuth that I am, I looked him up on the BYU Alumni site. The name, graduation year, and major matched. The adress listed was in his hometown so I sent it off.
About two weeks later we got a card back from him, but when we opened it we were astonished to see a picture of a family we've never seen before. It was not Craig's former roommate, nor his wife and children.
I like to imagine the wife opening our card (with a picture of our kids on it), shrugging her shoulders and deciding it must be from someone she doesn't remember. So she reciprocated by sending us a card.
It still makes me laugh.
Think we'll get one from them this year?
