After graduation, my friends and I all moved to different parts of the country. One of those friends has a birthday coming up. Since her birthday is in the summer, she always got the short end of the stick in terms of celebrating with the friends as we'd all be packing to leave/finishing up finals before we left, and when we did get a real celebration in, it was coupled with another friend's summer birthday and post-finals celebrating. Though we don't normally exchange gifts, I wanted to send her something this time because it always bugged me that she didn't get the same consideration that others in our group did.
I wasn't sure of the date (I'm not on FB anymore), and I didn't want to tip her off to the surprise by asking so I bought it online ahead of time and figured it was ok if it arrived early. Well it arrived on Friday of last week. After a couple of days of not hearing from her, I went ahead and texted her to check her mail. She said her roommate has the mail key, but she'll go check once she gets it from her. It's been 3 days since then and I'm pretty sure she hasn't checked yet (we text each other at least 10 times a day).
Her birthday, it turns out, is tomorrow and I want her to have her gift, but also I want to ensure that it actually arrived to the proper spot- is it nagging to ask her to check her mail again? I guess I'm kind of giving up on the surprise part at this point.
