Thus, she brings to you--to hold you over--two missions completed recently by a couple of our Affiliated Agents. Enjoy!
Date: Tuesday, 6 October 2009
Location: study carrel, Gumberg Library, Duquesne University
Affiliated Agent D (who is a man, by the way--our first male Affiliated Agent!!) states: "It's not nearly as crafty and nice looking as some of the ones you have done, but I left it in one of the study carrels in the library yesterday afternoon."
Secret Agent L is flattered by Affiliated Agent D's kind remarks about her craftiness. She assures Affiliated Agent D that his work is just as fabulous. How nice that someone who has been studying hard will stumble upon that Starbucks gift card and will be able to buy a yummy treat to help get through that intellectual rigor!
Date: 18 September 2009
Location: Candy and magazine shop, Reagan National Airport (DCA), Washington, D.C.
Time: agent did not specify
Affiliated Agent L states: "The weekend of Sept 18 I was headed to a wedding in Chicago and had a little time to get together something fun for my very first mission. I went to the dollar store not far from my office and I decided that there might be some kids with frantic mom/dad headed to the airport like I was but might be in need of some $1 fun stuff for the airplane ride.
"I picked out a set of plastic farm animals and a tube of colored pencils (gender neutral so either a little gal or guy might enjoy!). I attached the calling card and a note that read 'This is for your little one going on a big trip! Bon Voyage!'
"Had I thought through the mission a little more, I might have realized that dropping a mysterious package and slyly snapping pictures is not the best activity for the DCA Washington DC airport. But once I realized this, I was already through security with a few minutes to spare before my hopping on the plane.
"I settled on a drop spot inside the candy and magazine shop, on the shelf next to the diapers, handy wipes, sewing kits, etc where I imagined a frazzled mom or dad my go. I dropped the package snapped a couple quick picks and disappeared to Chicago!
Thank you so much, Affiliated Agents! Keep up the good work!
