The Gift

Early this morning, Lil Sippy Cup walked up to me and politely requested some masking tape.

I've become accustomed to his random requests and (after double-checking that he had not somehow created an explosive out of modeling clay) I gave him a few pre-cut pieces from the "Stuff" drawer in the kitchen.

I walked into the living room to find him furiously at work.  His back was to me so I had no idea what new invention he was constructing but, since nothing was on fire, I figured it was harmless.

After 5 minutes, he stood up, walked over to where I was sitting and handed me the following:


He had wrapped a present for his baby sister.

I have received specific instructions that I am not allowed to open it until she is born.

Since it isn't ticking and it isn't emanating any foul odors, I figure it is safe to oblige his request.

Regardless, I thanked him and let him know that, without a doubt, he was the World's Greatest Big Brother.

Take it to the airport next time you travel and let it get x-rayed. If you don't get arrested, it's cool.
