This is what afternoons off are for.
I just picked up the phone and appealed
For a package to come to me, sealed.
It's a presenty piece
For my bot's age increase,
But its nature will not be revealed!
Today has thus far included vegan chocolate cake at work, being gratuitously old-fashioned by wandering around the office in my delicate and lovely shawl which is actually an unfinished crocheting project, going home early, a pleasantly productive call to my doctor's office, a pleasantly productive call to somewhere else as per the above limerick, and burning my tongue pretty badly on the molten lotus paste in the middle of a rather freezer-burned steamed bun. All told, I think I'm doing pretty well.
Now: Chinatown, or no Chinatown?

Arrrrgh! The suspense!
If it arrives at the house, you'd better hide it right away. Otherwise it won't be a secret for long...
Yes, of course he's a robot. He's a robot made of cookies!
If I ask whether going to Chinatown is better than staying at home and finishing my crocheting, will I be relentlessly mocked?
Hey, I get home earlier than you, remember? It'll be hidden before you even know it's arrived.
are you having a party, robot?
But our house isn't that large. My hunting skills are sharp.
Hmmmm... A party. I suppose it could be a combo belated housewarming/birthday party. Or it could be an elsewhere (St. Elsewhere) party, so that there's no need to clean. I'll get back to you on that.
don't invite that many people then.
