Stressed beyond measure by the sheer amount of stuff that must be done in the shortness that is this day. I feel like my head might blow right off the top of my neck.

And a small question: why does packaging for everything from children’s underwear to orange juice to a PACK OF HEADBANDS FOR MY DAUGHTER need to be so freakishly difficult to open? You’re telling me that Goody needs to use serrated plastic knotted three times to keep a pile of headbands together? Really? Do people tend to steal them one at a time?

    OK, ya got me.

  2. Beth, I feel your pain.

    By the way, whenever I steal headbands, I take at least three or four.

    Actually, I hope there’s some sort of a backlash here. I recommend a boycott — as parents we should stop buying toys that take longer to open than to wrap, or require more tools to dissemble the packaging than, say, a set of hands with opposable thumbs.

    As far as food packaging? It’s all about lawsuits. Tamper-resistance is a big deal; neither consumers nor retailers will buy products that look as if they might have been opened before.

    I THOUGHT all those headbands you wear had to be contraband! (heavens, I amuse myself)
