The Box


Grandma's cleaning house in preparation to move. She told me she was giving me something I could take a picture of and throw away. Then she handed me this.

Yes, it is. It is a box disguised as a Rubik's Cube. On my husband's head. It was a Halloween Costume that Eric and his Dad made in 198x...he's not sure which year. But apparently it was long ago, there are eye slits, but now some 25 years later, he can't see out of them.

But Chris could.

Chris HAD to put it on, he carried it home, wouldn't put it down, and now loves this silly Rubik's Cube box more than anything. I'm not going to be able to throw this thing away. And Darn It, he looks adorable in it. Eric we mocked, but Chris is adorable. Chris found Eric's name written inside it, pointed to the letter C, and said C is for Christopher...(and Cube). And he loves it. And he's never even played with one! HOWEVER, he did ask me on the way home, "Did Wall-E played with a Rubitstube?" And Yes, I think he did.
