Wood Tape

Monday, September 26th, 2011

I enjoyed Scott Nesin’s tale of the wood tape.

My wife calls me at work, and we have the usual end-of-the-day chat. Then:

“Oh, by the way, Guy wants you to take him to the hardware store, he wants to get some tape.”

“What kind of tape?”

“He says he wants ‘wood tape’.”

“Wood tape?”

“Wood tape.”

“Uhhh, ok. When?”

“Sometime this weekend. He is really looking forward to going.”

Guy is my four-year-old son. No problem, I just need a fraction of an excuse to visit a hardware store.

I won’t spoil it for you.
