The Package; A Drabble

“Another package from your secret admirer?” Her friend gestured towards the wrapped box she was holding.

“I guess so.”

“Well, are you going to open it?”

She turned the package over, “I guess?”

“Wait!  In case it’s a bomb.  Or a plague or something.” Her friend moved to the other side of the office, “Okay, open it.”

“You honestly think three feet of distance will protect you from the plague?” She tore the wrapping off and opened the box.

“Well? What is it?”

“It’s… Uh…a framed photo of his junk.”

“Ooh, how romantic.” Her friend paused, “Well, let me see it!”
