Strange. Yesterday people kept giving me merchandise that they had covered in printed paper and had bound either with colorful strings or transparent adhesive. Some even had flower-like origami sticky things on top. Everyone seemed eager for me to tear off all the paper they had obviously taken pains to put there and take note of the contents. That's not even the strangest part! It turns out that I too was a party to this strange ritual for I had several colorful parcels in my car that I handed out to everyone -- and I seemed to have had it all planned out. Weird. Could be the weather.
