I was always fascinated watching my mom wrapping presents. My favorite part was when she would cut the paper with one fluid sweep of the scissors. I didn’t know paper could be cut like that. I just had my little round ended scissors that I had to hack at things with. As I got older I started helping her with wrapping things and she helped me get it right. This is apparently a rare skill for a boy to have. When I got older and gave gifts to people I would frequently get comments like “Hey your girlfriend did a good job wrapping this.”
