I have found out, since your last visit here, that the “Unlikely’s” are given their designation at birth (I guess there’s some kind of ‘high counsel’ or something) and then sent out into the world with the goal of debunking any unlikely they find. Once I knew this I was not surprised to see this small creature hiding inside my mail box.
“What are you doing in there?” “I have always wanted to travel and it seems the best way to see the world would be to put myself in the hands of the US Postal Service”.
“The Post Office is very particular about the way mail is packaged and you’re not even packaged at all. You must come home.” At that point she jumped up on top of my mail box. “It simply seems the quickest way to travel and I’m sure I qualify for ‘priority’ service”. “That is VERY unlikely. In fact you’re more likely to end up in the dead letter box!” “WHAT???”
“Come home and I’ll fix you some tea, spread the Atlas out in front of you and you can let yourself travel wherever you like.” “Okay, but I get to choose the tea.”
