‘Tis the Season for Mysterious Packages

Yuletide is certainly the time for mysterious packages and parcels.  Everyone loves surprises, right?  I know I do–when I’m arranging them for other people.  For instance, take this box that the human male received at work just the other day.

The events of the dim past slid up from the depths of his memory.  Back in February, he had ordered a number of these copier accessories and asked that one of them be shipped most expeditiously.

That’s this one.
