being grown up
a box of candle making supplies i ordered arrived this morning. every time i get a package and can't find the scissors (or they just aren't within arms reach of where i put the box down) i grab a pen to stab open the tape on the box. i was never allowed to do this growing up (if i ever got caught i'd be in trouble). my mom always told me that i'd wreck the pen by doing it (pens were often precious in our house, they often dissappeared into that weird black hole where they met up with lost socks and random other household items). i think 90% of packages that i've received since i moved out of home over 11 years ago have been opened with pens-- and i've never broken one yet!
