Alma Mater Matters

Today I received a book that I ordered online from There are thousands of sellers online and I purchased my textbook from a person in Texas.

I opened up the package and in it was the packing slip listing the item details. But written on the paper was a note: “Hi Ryan, I was a MiddKid too! Class of 05.5! – Claire”

What are the chances that I ordered a textbook from a Middlebury alumnus out of the thousands of textbook sellers on Amazon? Eh, I guess the same teachers use the same textbooks over the years…
