But at 7:00 on Wednesday evening, it still had not shown up at the house.
I wondered If the Grinch had suddenly appeared out of nowhere to rob all the presents from that particular Fed Ex truck.
Then at about 8:00 the doorbell rang signifying that there was justice in the world, Christmas had been saved, and that my precious shipment had arrived.
It came in a plain brown box. The helmet box fit neatly inside. I had also ordered another lens and it was packed carefully in the box as well.
Now, with these closeout prices, sometimes you have to deal with size availability issues as well as styles and colors that might not be your first preference.
I was originally looking for just a plain silver or white helmet. I am really not into wild colors and patterns. But with the savings involved, I could put up with a little bit of obnoxiousness.
Plus I sure don't mind that this helmet is probably fairly visible to cage drivers, my new mortal enemy.
So what do you think?
Will I look like a Storm Trooper?
