So, apparently my package decided to go out on the town in Cincinnati. I can't blame it. I mean, I went out for St. Paddy's Day too.

But I don't understand why you decided to detour back to Colorado after spending the day in Washington. I realize Denver is hella awesome, but you were so close. Why did you have to start traveling backwards?! And now it's the 23rd and you could be all that way back to Boston by now. Whatever I did to make you mad, I'm sorry. Please come back. Please?

OMG! I feel your pain! this happens to me constantly! I also have packages that like to "tour" Alaska before it gets to me. I've had a package make its way to Anchorage where it could have hopped on Alaska Airlines and come straight to Nome, but instead it wanted to see the sights in Fairbanks, and then it decided to check out Barrow...BARROW! what the Hale!? it took two weeks to get to Nome...from Barrow! USPS is amazing! idiots!

Maybe it left something behind in its Cinci shenanigans that it needs to go back and pick up, or patch up, or something?
