A few weeks ago, my daughter received a “Make Your Own Clock” kit-in-a-can from grandma for her birthday. We sat down to put it together on Sunday and I promptly tossed the instructions after reading the first line: “After marking the center, drill a 3/8 inch hole in the lid of the can.” Who in their right mind would find joy in putting clock parts on the package they came in?
I went down the basement to find a more suitable substrate. When I came back, my daughter’s attention was focused on Play-Doh and Littlest Pet Shop Pets, thus leaving me to finish the job alone. I have Jody Churchfield at O Magazine to thank for the book!
