His Spanish teacher is making them do one of those horrific white elephant gift exchanges for the last day of class before break tomorrow. The rules are simple: The gift has to be store-bought, cost between $1 and $15, and be wrapped.
So Impus Major is buying a watermelon, and having me pack it in a nice box so it won't roll around (or move at all), and NobodysWife wrap it (she takes wrapping to a new level of art form -- if you have to use more than one piece of tape, it's ruined. And if you have to use a piece of tape at all, you could have done better).
Then tomorrow he's going to sit back and enjoy watching his classmates squabble over the heavy, beautifully-wrapped "gift".
And yep, it matches all of her criteria.
Please tell me he steeples his fingers while this goes on, muttering "dance, puppets, dance!"
I am pretty sure we already determined that Impus Major is gone to be a world top class villain.
There is hope for the younger generation after all.
