Too close for comfort?

It goes without saying that we are enormously fortunate to have in each other the kind of friends who are truly family. That she and I were roommates before we were married and so were our husbands is a fun coincidence. That we have equally strong friendships with each other's spouses is a rare gift. That our kids are just as close as we are is just plain lucky. We're blessed and we know it. Countless daily phone calls and weekend get-togethers and "family" holidays and times when we lend each other a hand remind us how much richer our lives are because of each other.

But when I receive in my mailbox an advertisement addressed to a hybrid person -- someone with her first name and middle initial and my last name and address? That, I have to say, is a little too incestuous even for us. Sorry, my friend... I'm keeping the coupon for myself.

What pray tell was the coupon for???? And a bit confused.

My mom gets hybrid mailings all the time as I often have holiday gifts shipped to her under assumed names so she doesn't open them by mistake.

But I don't remember ever having anything shipped to your house...although I admit my memory is faulty and it is possible.
