The total package

June 14, 2017 - 3:26am
Guess what? There is very little difference in appearance between a black soaker hose with a yellow stripe and a striped snake coiled up in it - except only one moves when you grab it by mistake. Yeah, that was not my best moment. It's not like it was going to hurt me, but I really, really don't like snakes. Yet, there it was last Saturday, wrapped up with my hose like a tiny package of nightmares that will continue to haunt me for a long time. While not nearly as horrifying, I remember a few years ago when another package gave my husband's family new holiday lore to add to their collection. My mother-in-law got a gift in the mail for Christmas. As she started to unwrap it, she began to show her excitement for the George Forman grill advertised on the box. Except when she opened it, there were bath products inside. They still joke about the "George Forman lotion," though someone did eventually buy her that grill. Sometimes packaging can drive you nuts. I remember the frustration of unpacking toys, especially Barbie dolls, when my daughter was little. Not that long ago I bought a pair of scissors - but I couldn't get the plastic packaging off. I actually needed scissors to get into my scissors.
