Someone sent you a brick? :blink:

 

Weird ::P:

A random brick!

 

It's a play on a Facebook meme that's going around - "tag a friend in a random stock photo." But - pretty much everyone I know IRL would have sent it to my address, not my folks.

 

Return address was fake, postmark was New York.

:blink: If someone said "Random Stock Brick" to me, I would've thought LEGO block.

 

If it's meant as a prank, then the sender is pretty serious about pranks 'cause shipping heavy bricks costs a bit more than few stamps. Our old family neighbour would've been that kind of person.

About $7, according to the postmark!

 

Edit to add: I think I've found the website they used, actually... Which means the NY postmark is useless.

 

https://funkydelivery.com/product/mail-a-brick/

 

So, someone spent about $14 to confuse the hell out of me while making a meme reference.

 

... money well spent...

After reading that website, I have to admit I feel a twinge of envy for whoever came up with the idea, because they figured out how to monetize mailing bricks and glitter to random people. :lol:

 

Huzzah!

I'm just profoundly grateful that my brick sender didn't spring the extra $3 to have the envelope filled with glitter, too.

... Although I'm seriously considering sending glitter and a get well card (and a brick) to my friend who loves glitter and recently scratched her cornea...

Ummm surprise glitter and scratched corneas do not go well together.  Just a friendly FYI.

 

Instead send her a get well message delivered by a creepy clown.

I can’t believe you accused ME of doing this on bookfarce! As I said on there, waaaay too clever of an idea for me and I honestly don’t know if I still have your address(es).
