🤔 Does anyone else...
...WISH THEY COULD HIT THE RESET BUTTON?
It's National Get Out of the Dog House Day!
I will be spending my week trying to get out of the "dog house" with all the customers whose orders have been delayed the last two weeks. (Boredwalk co-founder Matt got into what caused this in our Friday email last week.)
While I will do everything in my power to get us caught up on printing and shipping this week, letting myself off the hook will probably take longer.
Do things beyond my control often happen that interfere with our ability to do things like ship 100% on time? Yes. Do I beat myself up for it anyway? Also yes. Nonetheless, thank you to everyone who sent kind messages of encouragement last week. You are the real MVPs!
Boredwalk has the best customers ever!
Alright, here are a couple of famous July 18th birthday shout outs...
• Actress Kristen Bell was born on this day in 1980. Hope she's in a Good Place today!
• Actor/heartthrob/Gossip Girl alum Chace Crawford was born on this day in 1985.
• Aviator/engineer/astronaut/politician John Glenn was born on this day in 1921. He was the first American to orbit the Earth, circling it three times in 1962. Following his retirement from NASA, he served from 1974 to 1999 as a Democratic United States Senator from Ohio.
• Polymath/scientist Robert Hooke was born on this day in 1635. Hooke was the first person to visualize a micro-organism using a microscope. He also built the earliest Gregorian telescope, and then observed the rotations of the planets Mars and Jupiter.
Alright! That does it for this email — with all the craziness lately we have been remiss in requesting volunteers for our weekly community Q&A segment.
If you'd like to be featured in an upcoming Monday email (and are a customer with some Boredwalk tees, tanks, hoodies, towels, bags, or books to show off), just reply to this and let us know, and Matt will send you some fun questions to answer along with our undying gratitude!
We'll be back here in your inbox on Wednesday with some more random holidays to observe, historical tidbits to acknowledge, and fun links to entertaining content! Until next time...
Peace, love, and getting out of the dog house,
