Battle Of Overpacking

Filed under: Operation Mortal Coil — lbej @ 10:57

Conditions are deteriorating in the dining room; my forces are being overrun by bubble wrap, newspaper, paper towels, and other assorted packing materials.  I had severely underestimated the sheer volume extracted from boxes over the past several weeks.  My mother packed boxes with approximately 30% to 50% padding, whereas I max out at 20% in the case of extremely fragile ornaments and figurines.  Perhaps Mom reasoned that it would be best to reduce the weight of boxes at the expense of volume, a strategic approach not unreasonable for a tiny woman.  Ha ha no.  I could replace the words “reasoned” and “strategic” with literally any other words and be no closer to or further from the mark.  How about “bazooka” and “potato?”
