So for my roommate's birthday I got him a 500GB ATA hard drive to use in his firewire enclosure. This is an older enclosure so I needed to get him one of the older ATA drives as opposed to the newer drives that use a Serial ATA interface.

When the box arrived, not only was there the drive, but a sample box of Kellogg's Smart Start cereal:



Without missing a beat I said "Oh, that must be the Serial ATA upgrade"

He threw the cereal box at me.

Oh, I just got that. What's his postal address? I'd like to send him more to throw at you.

I have some very good bricks in my back garden. Can I send them too?

How appropriate that the photo was taken in the kitchen of all places . You should've put a carton of milk next to it to top it off . One question though... Did you open it there too ?

Aloha,
Doug

You'd think that Amazon would have at least provided the milk. Oh, wait...

Did you open it there too ?
Actually, yes. All mail gets opened in the kitchen.
