Wrapping Presents

Oh how I loathe wrapping presents. Millions of years of evolution have equipped me with all the instincts to shred the protective outer layers of gifts, but the art of wrapping them is an alien and frustrating activity. Perhaps I could invent some some sort of aerosol gift wrapping spray. Simply liberally coat your gift (in a well ventilated area), allow several minutes to dry and voila… wrapping complete. Come to think of it, I think they already have that and call it “spray paint”.

    I often use aluminum foil, with a saran wrap bow. People think it’s deliberate.

    I have an automatic gift-wrapping device, called a hoshiadam. 🙂 Turns out a perfectly-folded, symmetrical, aesthetically-pleasing gift-wrap every time.

    Then I go to wrap a gift for him, and I really might as well just wad up a bunch of paper and wrap tape all around it, it comes out the same.

    I love it, Lemon… keeps gifts fresh for later and prevents freezer burn!

    I suppose borrowing this “hoshiadam” is out of the question, but you have inspired me for another invention…

    A device that spray that self-expanding, self-hardening foam. Simply encase your gifts in a durable, amorphous cocoon, that your friends and family can gleefully borrow through come the holiday morning.

    G, I know how we’re wrapping your gift this year…

    P is a showoff. My mom and I want to pit him and Pip against each other in a gift wrapping contest. He makes origami flowers for bows. Who DOES that?

    Paper folding mutant; no good will come of it. Now if this were a laundry folding competition, bring it on! 🙂
