blast from the past

Last December, I ordered a bottle of Liefmans Goudenband from an online Irish retailer for my friend Sue in Dublin. Today, nine months later, I receive the receipt in the mail. It was processed by the Irish post on September 9, so it's not like it ended up in an obscure corner of a USPS facility. I wonder what series of events led to someone printing out and posting this old receipt via airmail to me.

I was much amused by the inclusion of the gift note on the receipt. It concluded, "Keep that bunny [Fionnuala] away from the beer or you might not have any left to drink!"
