So there's this one guy at my PO who ends up checking in most of my outgoing fluffy packages, and every now and then he asks me fluff questions and if I make any money (HECK NO :LOL). So today, I was sending out two more packages and he told me he had a box full of diapers at home and if I wanted to take a look at them. Like holy mother of pearl, there are people here in hicktown with FLUFF!!!
He said they're brand new cause his DW had planned on using cloth and chickened out. I tried to ask him what brand/size they were but poor guy was like a deer stuck in headlights cause he had no idea : Anyway, he gave me his number and I'm going to check them out whenever I find the motivation They're probably crummy Kushies AIOs or something, but the fun is in the surprise! Heck, I might be able to get a good deal.
I'm just so dumbfounded about all this! :LOL And to think he waited this long to tell me!! Hehe... anyway, it really made my day

I think I would pass out if anyone in my little town had a cloth diaper (or even knew what one looked like :LOL)

I almost fell over when a mama asked me about my dd's cloth diaper at the peds office, it turned out someone else in this town uses cloth!

Isn't that funny when someone unexpected mentions they cloth diaper? I just moved to a new town and had my first ped. visit yesterday. I mentioned to my doc that we were cloth diapering and he went on to tell me about the cloth diapering sevice he and his wife used two years ago! I like this guy!

What's wrong with Kushies AIO's? I think they make a good daytime diaper and dry as quickly as PF's, and can even be stuffed a little to increase absorption. I had 5 mediums I bought on EBAY not knowing what brand they were, and bought 5 more new in the next size when DD outgrew them.

I haven't called yet : I went to my dad's for a BBQ after playgroup today, and then after the BBQ... to the coffee shop for dessert. So now it's 11:30PM and I don't think he or his DW would appreciate me calling their house at this hour : I actually was going to call from my dad's, but his phone number was at my place so it's going to have to wait until tomorrow.

I'm going to check them out then, I promise!
