Christmas card crisis.

Christmas cards.

So I have my stack of cards all assembled, stuffed in their envelopes, and ready to go to the post office. I then notice that have two assembled cards left over, which is more than I expected to have. I count the cards to see if I missed anyone.
According to my math:

I have 20 cards in envelopes.

I printed 21 inserts with our holiday greeting that gets attached inside the card.

I have 2 cards left over, each with a greeting attached inside the card.

This can mean only one thing. Someone is going to receive a blank card.

How embarrassing.

My first inclination was to rip open all of the cards and start over, but Mark stopped the madness by pointing out that whoever receives the blank one will know who it's from by our return address.

Still, I feel like I've committed an extreme breech of etiquette. If the person who receives the blank card is reading this, I promise that I will personally sign it the next time I see you!

My guess is that I will be the one who gets it!
You probably got those two Melissa's mixed up; as many people seem to do!

Relax, one of 20 is not a bad error margin!
