One of my best friends lives in Austin, Texas. She was unable to come home for Christmas this year, so we were forced to mail each other our gifts. However it was a really fun surprise for me to open her gift on my first day of classes.
It was even more of a fun surprise for Espresso.
According to Espresso, pretty much nothing beats a squeak toy with rope attached.
Well, almost nothing - a new twisty ball with a treat in it comes close.
I doubt my friend realized how perfect her gift was; the distraction of two new awesome toys kept Espresso busy, leaving me in peace to do the New York Times crossword book she gave me.
