Less than 24 hours after I wrote about the case of the missing Grape-Nuts, a mysterious stranger delivered 10 boxes of the crunchy little nuggets to my door. Thank you anonymous benefactor!
The surprise delivery happened this morning. I was at work, sitting at my desk when the receptionist called.
Receptionist: "Um . . . did you order a shipment of Grape-Nuts?"
Receptionist: "I just got a delivery of Grape-Nuts with your name on it."
Me: "Are you kidding me? Is this a joke?"
Receptionist: "No. Did you order these Grape-Nuts?"
Me: "No! Hang on. I’ll be right there."
And there sitting on the receptionist's desk was a huge container full of boxes and boxes and boxes of Grape-Nuts. It was like manna from heaven.
She explained that they had been dropped off by Stong's Market but with no note and no name attached. It was clearly the work of a great humanitarian or a Grape-Nuts PR person.
Either way, I've got enough Grape-Nuts to last the rest of the year. So, thank you (whoever you are).
