Wrapping it Up
WS was wrapping a present for Jimmy. He had a whole long roll of wrapping paper and he measured out the sides of the box against the top and bottom edge of paper and satrted cutting.
I questioned "Really?"
"Who is wrapping this, me or you?" WS asked.
So he cut another piece to fill in the gap, and we had pretty much the same conversation ("Really?, "I'm just filling in the gap.", "OK"). Too bad I didn't get a good pic because that one filled in the gap at the top, but only covered the top so there was a gap at each side.
Yes, WS took 3 pieces of precisely cut wrapping paper to wrap a bunch of oil and oil filters for Jimmy's bike. I must admit that by the time he was done, it looked fine.
I was quite impressed with Hubby this year, he managed to wrap all the christmas gifts himself, dispite help from the animals, and they all looked fine! Usually they end up a wad of tape and paper and I end up redoing them...

WS usually does a fine job of wrapping - much better than any wrapping that I can do, which is what made this so funny to me.

Good for your WS. *laughing* There was only one thing that I wrapped this year: for your dad. As I was not about to go to a store for such a paltry amount of paper, I dug out what papers were left from prior years and pieced together (a little more successfully than using 3 pieces, having to use only 2) enough to make an adequate covering for the approximately 1 square foot, 3" deep box. Then...I got out the plastic upright holder for wrapping paper and set it aside for Wonderful GrandDaughter (or whoever) wanted it. I did not bother to go through it. I think that what it contained was a few empty spools from rolls of paper, perhaps a roll of Kraft paper, and a bunch of folded boxes. It is out of our house and someone else's "problem", now.
