Family Funny ~ You've Been Shrink Wrapped

I have one regret - not getting pictures. 

After my 16 year-old daughter helped me shrink wrap gift baskets for a fundraiser donation, we had a few pieces of basket shrink wrap left over.

They girls were him-hawing at the table later, and I was in the front room knitting.  

"You know what we should do?" one asked the other in the kitchen.  "We should shrink wrap "K's" stuff  before she gets home."

(My 13 year-old was out shopping with hubby, and would be home to go to a sleepover)

"Let's do it," responded the other with a devious eyeball response.


So they got the hair dryer out, and shrink wrapped their sister's hair brush, flat iron, eye liner, and mascara.  

When she got home, and looked at her items to pack for the sleepover, she was very confused.  

"What happened to my makeup?" she asked me. 

(more giggles)

"My hairbrush?!"

(more giggles)

"And my flat iron?!  Really?"

So funny! I had the same experience with these kids. I shrink-wrapped my brother's soccer stuffs. When he's going for a practice, he was so mad at me when he saw his stuff wrapped with plastic.
