I Now Present to You...
This box took all of my free time yesterday and last night. I was all up in the Container Store, for an hour, looking at letter size boxes. And then there was the ribbon. I needed the perfect shade of off-white to complement the orange box.
And then the filler inside the box - which is dark brown - not just any dark brown, but chocolate.
Last night I became a semi-resident of Kinkos - resurrecting my college days when I would spend the bulk of the night at Kinkos working on a class presentation and/or project. Printing brown ink on orange paper was a part time job of itself and I have no idea why Kinkos employs the daftest people for its night shifts?!?
This morning I hand wrote a cover letter/note which is tucked into the ribbon.
I wrapped up the box, to what you see here, then walked it five blocks to the UPS store for it to be shipped.
Shipped four blocks to an event planning firm.
Inside this box lies my resume. Wish it luck.
