First Fruit for IRKs reveal
So far, fruit for IRKs is off to a great start. I just received my IRK, and @djslack is getting a taste of a real IRK by having his package of fruit delayed (if it gets delayed too much longer, he’ll end up with a box of regret instead of fruit, but that’s to be expected with a Meh-facilitated exchange.¯\(ツ)/¯).
First off, packaging that brings a tear to my eye! It’s a good start.
What’s this?! I specifically asked for no TrakRs! You get my hopes up with the box and now this!? You’re playing me like a violin!
Then all the important stuff: An IRK bag (my first!) and Meh sticker, tissues which I won’t use, awkwardly shaped shot glasses that I won’t use, a pair of kid size furry socks which I won’t use, a pair of adult socks which I’ll actually use, and some weird workout gel I won’t even be able to give away. And an official Meh toothbrush that got a chuckle out of me, and a USB wall charger. No use for these right now, but I’ll wind up using them eventually. All in all, a very good representation of an IRK. Except for one detail: It wasn’t loosely packed with things rattling around. That’s what the note said anyway.
Wait, what’s that the note said about it being a pasta-IRK hybrid? There’s something else at the bottom of the box!
My pride and joy! You do care! I take back everything I said about you! I will feast! FEAST! FOR DAYS—NAY, WEEKS! IT’S ALL MINE!!
Excellent combination of regret and pure joy. Good enough experience for me to do it again, but I don’t know if it’s something @djslack would want to do again. We’ll have to see the state of the fruit when it finally arrives.
