We just received a set of plans at the office by FedEx. Instead of being folded, they were rolled, and shipped in a "tube" package, which is suitable for maps and plans, or posters, or anything of that sort. The assembled package is a large triangular prism. Perfectly reasonable, right?
Except I associate something entirely different with that kind of packaging. The Medfest swords were mostly from Starfire, and thus were guaranteed to stay intact and in good shape, even with the wear and tear we put on them. Usually once a year we shipped one of the swords back to them for repair or replacement. The best way to ship a sword, from our experience and Starfire's recommendation, is in a FedEx Tube. And the year that shipping the sword was my responsibility was the first time I ever saw that packaging.
So when the FedEx driver showed up with our delivery this morning, I'm afraid it may have been rather apparent that I wasn't thinking about site maps. Yes, I'm a strange one.
