Author's Note: How Amazon Same-day Delivery Works

It's been nearly a year since I accidently enrolled in Amazon Prime, and now I don't know what I'd do without free two-day shipping. But same-day shipping? What is this madness? It's too bad the service is only available in big cities, though. I guess us small-city folk won't be enjoying it anytime soon — but then again, it wasn't that long ago that we were all waiting a week or more for standard shipping.
