How to get a childhood friend to accept repayment of $5 that you embarrassingly had to borrow while feeling like crawling under a rock and dying.
Ziploc bags in the following sizes: snack, sandwich, quart, gallon; 1 each
24 chocolate chip cookies, homemade preferred
1.) Insert $5 in snack bag. Add a note if preferred:
2.) Insert snack bag into sandwich bag along with cookies:
3.) Insert sandwich bag into quart bag along with cookies:
4.) Insert quart bag into gallon bag along with cookies:
5.) Sneak bag into target’s luggage.
Now you have successfully repaid your debt and managed to gift cookies as well! This method can be used to present engagement rings, concert/theater tickets or keys to a new car. I strongly warn against using this as a way of gifting puppies, kittens, goldfish, etc as this may have unexpected results. Good luck!
As I may have mentioned, I had an old friend and his family come and visit over the Memorial Day weekend. I hadn’t seen him in years and our kids got to meet each other and I finally got to meet his wife. It was fun and relaxing other than this $5 fiasco. And when I say fiasco, I mean in my own mind. No one else would think anything of it, but I was mortified. I shouldn’t have been as I’ve known him since middle school and he’s seen me puke, but I’m a loon.
Their visit was the motivation I needed to clean and paint the common spaces in the house and my craft room where they slept. More on that to come in a later post, but I was batshit crazy in the days and weeks leading up to their visit trying to get everything done (hence the radio silence). Good times!
