Wednesday's Example of Domestic Bliss #8
I buy Scotch tape in packs of 3, always with the 'bonus' roll if I can find it. (Can't beat a bonus right?) At Christmas I buy 3 or 4 packages. When a birthday approaches, I buy another roll or two just to make sure we have tape on hand. I must have 40 rolls of the sticky staple in the house... I just can't find a single one!
I have no clue what we use it on, we wrap in gift bags, I never see anything held together with transparent stickiness. My kids need it all the time but never for a decipherable reason. Everytime I hear "where's the tape?" a prickle runs up my back climaxing in a dull pain at the base of my skull and I dread the next 45 minutes. It's always imperative and never found.
My domestic Bliss today is actually found away from home, at my office. We don't have a single use for scotch tape in financial services but I've put a roll in my desk. This way, when someone at home asks "where's the tape?" I always know where a roll exists!
