What’s in Dad’s care package

Submitted by on Sunday, 20 June 2010 No Comment
We pulled out hair out for an idea for Father's Day before we finally wound up in the crafts shop on post. I wish we'd wound up there a week earlier, because it was too late to make mugs that Dad could actually drink out of - we didn't have time to do food-safe paint at this point. I'm sure he'll enjoy is orange-and-green pirate pencil holder and his shades-of-blue mug. "He could put a paper cup inside of it and use it for a holder," the lady running the shop suggested helpfully.

By the time I padded and bubble wrapped the mugs, they took up most of the room in this shipment. We still were able to wedge in a few other things.

Coffee: Oh, the irony of sending two pounds of Starbucks in a shipment that includes mugs he can't drink from. It had been a while since we'd sent coffee, though, and I figured his office stash might be running low.

Creamer: A 15-ounce jar of sweet Italian cream flavor. This will work well for someone doesn't really like coffee in its natural state.

Corn Nuts: The guys discovered these in the PX this week. Boots loves anything with the word "corn" in it, and Big Guy reluctantly tried them after he saw Boots' lip-smacking bliss. We sent three packages: regular, ranch and barbecue. They fit in neatly around the gift box.

Paydays: Two bars to fulfill the weekly Recommended Dad Allowance.
