Laurel and I went by the complex office today to pick up my Pentel order (a half-dozen of my preferred style of retractable-tip pencils found at $2.50 each!). Before finding that in the package room, one of the nice staff found we also had a parcel from Amazon.com.

It wasn't ridiculously big (28x16x6"/71x41x15cm) but it turned out to be heavier than it looked. I wasn't going to leave it there because I'd forget about it by the time Vogon got home, so I lifted with my legs and carried it back home while Laurel skipped around ahead of me with my padded envelope of office supply goodness.

When I got upstairs, I pulled on the label to see the packing list. Guess what it was? A bench grinder stand.

Next time I will look at the label first. Sheesh.

I think that's at least +2 str.

The package was only 19.4% of my weight. I'd say +2 if it had been over 25% of my weight, maybe more.

When I was much younger and idealistic, I wanted to volunteer with my hometown search and rescue team. Sadly, the weight of the gear for winter rescues was more than I weighed at the time.

I'm quite sure there's a D&D reference here somewhere.

Hey, don't let that stop you! That's my next job.
