A plain, cardboard box?
Ahhh, but it’s anything but plain. Or ordinary. It’s a box we’ve been waiting for since early June.
A box that contained, within it’s six corrugated sides, a birthday gift, and a Father’s Day gift.
Now through 2015.
I did try to keep it a surprise until it arrived. And I managed to keep it under wraps until Father’s Day. But, since it hadn’t arrived by then and there was, well, no other gift for the father around here… I kinda had to let the cat out of the bag.
So we all knew exactly what was in the box.
And none of us could wait to actually see it.
