We never got around to discussing a bow

In an unfortunate episode with scissors (weren’t they blunt when we were kids?), I find myself bleeding profusely.

Mo slaps a bandage on it and says that we need to wrap it.

I point out that it seems silly to wrap it. She would just  turn around and unwrap it later. She already knows it’s a hand, so there would be no surprise.  And we haven’t unpacked yet so who knows where the ribbon is anyway. I inquire as to whether we have any leftover gift bags we could stick it in instead. Maybe some colorful tissue to stuff around the sides.

Luckily I pass out at that point from blood loss so the conversation ends.

Mo is a very patient person.

    Maybe a hospital bracelet for a gift card?

    Let me share a little rule we have at the Bartolec residence. Don’t run with scissors. Hope that helps. Take care.
