Mysterious Package

Yesterday we received a mysterious package in the mail.

Well, the package itself wasn’t mysterious. It just looked like a regular Priority Mail envelope.

Ok, just a regular priority mail envelope

But once Matthew opened it, the mystery became evident.

Mystery!

You see, there was an envelope inside.

Envelope #1

In fact, there were two envelopes inside. Envelope #1:

OPEN THIS ONE FIRST

with the very specific instructions “OPEN THIS ONE FIRST” (in case you don’t care to take the time to read it for yourself).

And then, Envelope #2:

DO NOT OPEN UNTIL INSTRUCTED

with the equally specific instructions “DO NOT OPEN UNTIL INSTRUCTED.”

Matthew, overcome by curiosity, started to rip into the envelopes.

Ripping in

WTH?!?! CAN’T YOU READ???

Scold

It was clear Matthew was not taking any of this very seriously. I have banned him from touching the envelopes. And because the best way to punish an impatient person is to make them wait, we will not be opening either of them until tomorrow. We will keep you posted.
