This was a day filled with errands. My first stop was a quick one - the Nicolaus Post Office - just postage on three items.
Ronda: Would you like some stamps?
Arlete: Yes, the Celebrate, the Love, and the Edward Hopper sailboat.
Ronda: The Celebrate stamps are in this box that just came today . . . just a minute and I'll open it. These boxes are so hard to open, they're really sealed shut. (and I waited while she checked the inventory sheet and counted out 2548 stamps, one sheet at a time. She only had to do three recounts when the number didn't match.) I have to count them all out before I can sell them. (At last I paid my bill and could leave.) You wouldn't believe what this place looked like when I started working here two weeks ago . . . cobwebs . . . boxes stacked . . . (she continued a rather detailed list of accomplishments. I was near the door. Then she lifted the counter top and opened the gate underneath) and you should see what we did outside . . .
