When people know you’re “into” something. . . surprises appear. Last Friday, when I arrived at work, a Disney Trivia book was waiting for me. No claim as to the giver of the gift, so a total surprise. The copyright date was 1988, but still, it was a book filled with Disney trivia—theme parks (only 3 at the time of writing the book), animated features, live action movies, and Disney on TV. Already, I have enjoyed the book immensely.
Then, just yesterday, as a thank you gift, I received another Disney book—Disneystrology. A book of astrology based on Disney characters. The characters for my birthdate—The Dewdrop Fairies from Fantasia. The book says I’m magical, uplifting, and dedicated. Hmmm. . . And, this book has already been great fun to share with family, coworkers, and friends.
And, there was the book my local bookseller gave to me. It was about Celebration,
, the town that Disney built. It seems that after making a bulk purchase of books, my local bookseller came across the book and thought of me. Ahhh. . . I was happy to receive the book and have read it learning a lot about Celebration, etc. Florida
My mother-in-law gave me a biography about Walt Disney as a gift. Yep, read that one too!
Then there were the surprise Mickey earrings that I received on my birthday—click here to read more, the Mickey waffle maker that was a Christmas gift, Disney blankets have been given to us as gifts, and I received a Mickey fleece sweatshirt as a gift as well. All of them have been unexpected, yet welcome, surprises.
Yep, when people know you’re “into” something. . . many surprises appear!
