re: Creative wrapping

This weekend our friend Clay turned another year older. Derek found the perfect gift for him while thrifting in Ohio:

I told Derek that I would wrap the gift, and that he was in charge of the card. I got a little nervous when he immediately started rummaging around in the trash, but there was no need to be worried - he was just salvaging an old Bi-Rite ice cream bag to make a tank top card for our gift (our message was written inside the tank). I thought the tank top really worked well thematically with the 80s feel of the rest of gift.

Incidentally, this is also how I found out that Derek has spent his entire life thinking that "tank tops" were actually spelled "tang tops."

This is amazing!

I'm also one of those people who gets words wrong. Mostly in songs though

Me too. Karaoke is always an enlightening time.
