One day earlier, little Oscar had mailed an order form for a wanted toy. Now he was constantly pestering his mother to let him check the mail. Suddenly, looking out the window at the apartment complex mailboxes, he shouted: “The mail is in! The mail is in!” Neither he, nor his mother, had seen a mail carrier, mail truck, or any activity near the mailboxes. But Oscar was right; it was in. How had he known?
Did the mailboxes have big pods nearby so that a mail carrier could put a parcel in one of them, and the key to that pod in that resident’s mailbox? Yes.
