my hubbie called me from work today to ask that i get the roll of aluminum foil out of the kitchen cabinet. hmmmmm, i thought, what's he up to now? on my way to the kitchen (from the art room, of course) he said he and his co-workers were debating whether aluminum foil boxes had little push in tabs on the ends to keep the roll from falling out. i immediately answered no way. then as i pulled the box out of the drawer to my surprise there WERE tabs on the ends. i was stunned and laughed out loud. flashing before my eyes were all the times that the foil roll had leaped out of the box to land in the pan of lasagna, or roll across the floor or twist itself into an angry knot. when had some genius at reynolds come up with this ingenious invention? had it always been there and i was just too dense to notice? with lightning speed i grabbed the box of saran wrap and whoa! it had the little tabs as well. so, heloise, i'm writing you today to enlist your help. when, oh when, did these tabs magically appear on the boxes??!!
mystified in ohio
let the debate begin!
