I’m generally a rather organized, precise girl. So when I intended to renew my Oxford American subscription, I was fairly sure that I had followed through. Apparently not; I continued receiving renewal notices, warning me that I was in danger of missing the annual music issue. (Don’t you worry. Not only did I send in my two-year, automatic renewal notice–with the bonus of a gift subscription for my mother–this morning, I also pre-ordered the music issue. This year’s focus is Alabama music. I’ve anticipated it for months.)
Meanwhile, as I began reading the December issue of Esquire, I noticed an interesting notation on my subscription label. April 2013.
I’m glad I got something right–a couple of times over.
