Describe yourself in one adjective:
In the busyness of our weekend, between World Cup viewing parties, house hunting, dinners with friends, and “training” for the impending triathlon, getting my act together for a Sunday wedding shower slipped my mind. Luckily I had already purchased a gift, but unfortunately our home is gift-wrapless. One day, if our numbers are up, we will have a whole room devoted to gift wrapping.
I simply would not be able to stop myself from giving people presents.
Until then, I’ll make do with what I have. And what I have is tape and scissors.
In a pinch, I pulled the “Vows” pages out of the Style section out of the Times and used it to wrap my gift. In lieu of a bow, I put hearts around the couples I found particularly hilarious. (If you’ve ever read the vows section, you will agree that it’s more comic than romantic).
Kate, the BtB, was gracious, beautiful and appropriately oohed and aahed upon opening each present. And she really appreciated my gift and the creative packaging.
One point for me.
One point for Kate.
One point for the environment.
