It's the day of your daughter Milly's big football match, and to be clear that is the sort of football you play with your feet.
Anyway, she is missing a vital piece of equipment.
Specifically, a size three Puma EvoPower Firm Ground soccer shoe, the left one.
And some of it, sadly, is in the family's three-year-old bulldog, Stuart.
Find your tablets and place an order with Amazon for a pair of Puma Evopower Firm Ground soccer shoes and have them delivered in 30 minutes or less.
And in a location not too far away, a miracle of modern technology is dispatched.
It's an Amazon drone and after rising vertically like a helicopter to nearly 400 feet, this amazing hybrid design assumes a horizontal orientation and becomes a streamlined and fast airplane.
This amazing innovation then lowers its sole slowly to the ground drops off the package and flies straight back up to altitude.

And a Nylabone chicken-flavored DuraChew for naughty, naughty Stuart.
