Christmas Day, there is a gift under the tree from my older sister. Typical box wrapped in pretty Christmas paper.
Only thing, though…. a coat hanger hook is sticking up from the top.
“It wouldn’t fit any other way.”
Sigh. Smile. Intrigued.
The box gets opened.
It’s a pretty throw blanket on a hanger!
INSTANT uncontrollable laughter comes out of my collapsing body.
I say, “WHY didn’t you just take it OFF of the hanger????”
“What’s so funny? I couldn’t get it to fit in the box! I tried several different ways. It never occurred to me to take it off the hanger….”
My husband: “Couple of things here, Stace!
Fold the hanger inside the blanket.
OR, just take it off the hanger.”
Me: “You got straight A’s in Quantum Physics, but it never occurred to you to take the hanger off the blanket?”
She definitely proved one thing: She cannot think outside the box!
