Half a box? Don’t you like my tissues?

December 28, 2012


Lloyd and I went to see Les Miserables’ with Charles and Deborah Friday night, and since I knew I was going to blubber like a baby, I needed to take tissues. Also, since Lloyd’s runny-nose phase of his cold has kicked in, I was going to need a lot of tissues. I thought about taking a whole box, but that would be overkill.

I had a half-box handy, so I chopped it in half, stuffed the bottom in the top, and taped it closed.

Then I thought, “Rats. I should have taken a picture of the process for a better post.”

Then I wept a little at my forgetfulness, but fortunately, I had a tissue handy.

I need to take out the recycling.

The movie? It was good. Eleven tissues good.

    Ah, someone else who remembers that commercial! I quoted it recently and got a blank stare.

    I didn’t see this box until the dark of the theatre, so I thought it was made that way. Very convincing, Lauren. And thanks for bringing the tissues--not that I needed them.

    Very clever! I always just stuff a bunch of tissues in my purse in a clump.
