Mother's Day With Birthday Ribbon

There's not much to say about this one, so I decided to make it into a super-short Tuesday extra.

My wife handed me a package and said, "Wrap this while I go to the store."

So, what do you get when you give a Mother's Day gift to an idiot and ask him to wrap it?


I'm not in charge of wrapping gifts anymore.

"Idiot" or genius? My Father-in-law accidentally stuck my sister-in-law with a safety pin when changing her cloth diaper as a baby (back in the early 70's). After that, he didn't have to change any more diapers...

Did I ever tell you about the time my father got my step-mother to wrap her own Christmas gift without realizing it? This was 20 years ago, and she's never lived it down.

You'll have to share that story. Sounds awesome.

I once wrapped a wedding gift with baby paper. I was out of wedding paper and the baby paper was all pretty and shimery white on the back side, so I wrapped the paper back side out. All good! (the rest of this was related to me during a phone conversation two weeks after the wedding) The paper went unnoticed by anyone until after the honeymoon, as the gifts ended up just loaded up and stacked on the couple's dining room table. While on the honeymoon, the dismayed bride (and likely horrified groom) discovered the bride forgot to pack her birth control pills. On return, and opening gifts. I was branded at a psychic saboteur when they opened the gift and discovered the paper. As I understand it, I'm still held responsible for their first child...that didn't show up for another four years.
