Mystery package

When I got home from work today, there was a notice from Canada Post that they tried to deliver a package when nobody was home.

The only "package" that I am expecting is the replacement star certificate that I talked about last week.

The kicker, though, is that there is a fee due on this package. A fee of $9.95 or something like that, for taxes and/or duty I assume. Why there would be a fee on a piece of paper in an envelope is puzzling. I honestly can't see that being the case because the original package I received from them certainly had a greater value and I never had to pay anything for it when it arrived.

What did cross my mind is that perhaps the company that I ordered the star certificate from decided to send me something else along with the certificate to make up for their error. While that would be a thoughtful gesture, I'm not too pleased with having to pay $10 for whatever it is they sent.

I don't recall ordering anything else that would require a delivery. I sometimes order software online, but it's usually registering shareware, where there's no need to send a physical product.

I'm stumped, and a little anxious to find out what it could be.
