One of my all time favourite movies is the Sound of Music. I discovered that a friend also loves this movie and so for her birthday, I borrowed some lines from the movie…
Brown paper packages
Tied up with string
These are a few
Of my favourite things
Seriously Fräulein Maria? Is this really one of your favourite things? Brown paper packages, tied up with string? Are you kidding me chick? Do you need to get out a bit more sweetie? OK, just joking. Each to his own. Whatever turns you on missy.
Could I really pull this off in 2015 by wrapping a birthday present in brown paper and tying it with string? This could seriously backfire on me…
Thankfully, (phew!) my friend liked her package (and of course the present inside), especially when I accompanied giving her the gift with the sound effect of playing My Favourite Things from the Sound of Music on Sonos. Thanks Spotify.
