I Am Sam

You ever see that movie with Sean Penn playing a mentally handicapped person? I haven’t because I don’t like tearjerkers, or movies that are supposed to be inspirational. Therefore, all I know about that movie is that Sam is slow, or that word that means slow that I’m not supposed to use. Yesterday, I felt like Sam.

You see, I went Christmas shopping yesterday and when I got home I tried to wrap Jameil’s Christmas presents before she got there. Yeah, let’s just say it was not a good look. Scratch that, lets not just leave it there, because you need to know that I have absolutely no aptitude for wrapping presents. The first one came out okay. It wasn’t anything that you would write home about it, but it was presentable. The next 3 however, looks like Sam decided to take up gift wrapping. I mean, I was all thumbs. First the paper is baggy on the boxes. Don’t ask me how I managed that, especially since I watched a youtube video that gave me instructions on how to wrap gifts. I also got paper bunched up on the sides. I ripped a piece and had to start over, but the same thing happened again. So, I just put an extra piece of wrapping paper on top of it. On one gift the bottom looked okay, but the top was jacked up. So what did I do? I just flipped it over and made the top the bottom and the bottom the top. It was really messed up. I should take a picture so you can see. I told Jameil when she sees the wrapping she’s gonna want to pat me on the head and say “Bless his heart.” It’s that bad. Hopefully, she’ll like her presents enough that the wrapping won’t be a factor.

When it comes to wrapping gifts… I am Sam

I think you should stick with putting ribbon on boxes, or paying to have the gift wrapped.

You get a gold star for recognizing your skills and reaching out for help (YouTube)

Mostly children have more fun with the gift paper, bows and boxes (unless it's bubble wrap)so you don't have to worry about the fancy wrapping!

P.S. Next gift swapping occasion buy some tissue paper and pretty gift bags, can't go wrong! LOL!
