Cyndi: Okay, Percy, this package arrived earlier this month and you promised you would explain why we received it.
Sam: Yes, I'd like to know too. What does "you just got perk'd" mean? Are we supposed to write a review or something?
Micah: No, the way I understand it ... well, to quote from the enclosed card: You are receiving the perk because you are influential and have authority on topics related to the perk. You are welcome to tell the world you love the perk, you dislike the perk, or say nothing at all.
Merci: Isn't that strange? We don't know anyone who thinks we are influential. A bit amusing perhaps, but we don't even have enough authority to convince Jan to give us an allowance.
Cameron: I know, it's a practical joke. Someone wants to drive us crazy trying to figure out who is responsible.
Rusty: It could be a mistake. Someone intended to send it to the Funny Fanners and misspelled the name.
Buddy: And who would the Funny Fanners be, a dance team from the Flamingo Feather Farm?
Percy: Well, maybe one of our readers knows the answer. Have any of you received a Perk'd package?
Marcus: Well, I like to eat so I want to thank the Flamingo Funny Fanners for unwittingly sharing a bag of noms. Do you suppose they posted a flamingo feather dance video on YouTube?. I'd like to learn it.
Percy: To answer your original question, Cyndi, when I do figure out what and why, you'll be the first to know.
Marcus: Are you going to tell me too?
Percy: Not if you're feather dancing!
PS note from Buddy: Aw, how sweet. We just found out how we got the package and we would like to thank the Flamingo Funny Fanners (a pseudonym) for sharing with us. What a delightful surprise.
