853. Wrapping Gifts
As the holiday approaches or any special occasion where gifts are bought in masses, just piling them up is great until you have a stash as tall as Mt Everest and then have to wrap those suckers up. Some gifts are just so oddly shaped that you have to fold the wrapping paper in ways that no origami book could easily explain. Then you have some of the gifts that after you’re done you realize that after you are done you were short a spot and left a clear spot open – improvise with a bow or ribbon!
Running out of paper and tape is just even more befuddling when you are in a groove and then as you are just assembly lining up the gifts then you just realize oops now I’m at the tube. Cheap wrapping paper tears worse than a used dollar tree tissue pack and the fancy scotch tape that invisible when you set it down, well forget finding it once it’s laid. So if you’re on your day to “wrap” hopefully you’ll have your supplies in well stock and some gift bags and tissue paper handy cause it’ll be a mission to be had.
When you’re done you’ll stand back and smile.. then realize how awful one wrapping job turned out because Muffins the cat wanted to rip open one after you were finished laying them out under the tree!
