Wrapping And Cooking And Eggnog
By Karen and Erica
Are you in wrapping hell? Do you have millions of things spread all over your bed, and gilted paper everywhere, and not enough tape, and the wrong colored ribbon? Does your back ache? Are you ready to scream?
Well. look at this way. Lots of people still don’t have gifts for their loved ones. We’ll never forget running into a good friend, a husband and father, at 6 pm Christmas Eve, heading to Century 21. We couldn’t live like that. But he seemed totally confident he could get things done. And you surely can—you have days and days to go.
And there are benefits to gift wrapping. It is our scientific view that gift wrapping uses millions of calories and entitles you to a lot of eggnog. With cognac and rum.
Keep drinking the eggnog, because once you’re done with wrapping, you need to plan the menu. And do some more shopping. And set a festive table. And prepare a feast that will disappear in a flash. And wash up after it. Again, science shows that these activities allow you unlimited consumption of eggnog.
We love it all. Especially the eggnog.
