Postage paid

Yesterday I received a survey in the mail from "The Research Institute of Mother and Child Care". It was a survey on infant and toddler feeding.

They even go so far as to ask how I liked the packaging. Not being one to sit on my hands in these situations, I'm sending them this:

I have been known to mail penny saver coupons back to credit card companies in prepaid postage envelopes. You just have to be careful of the envelopes that have a bar code tracking. Otherwise, you're free to get as psycho as you want...I've even sent dirt and rocks. It felt sooooo good!

I think I'm going to go ahead and have me a little postage-paid envelope fun now... =)
