Every (and I mean every) time I hear the word “blurry” I think of a Saturday Night Live skit with in which everything John Belushi talks/complains about is “blurry and ill-defined.” I’d like to find the clip for you. Maybe that’s not even the line. It was, after all, 25 years (!) ago. But all I can find you is this image:
which almost implies the entire silly script. And yes, I’m sure that it is no-longer politically correct to make fun of the vision-impaired, like say for example, this dude:
But anyway… I learned today, from Susan, that you should not print address labels for important packages with an ink-jet printer, without other precautions such as sealing the address with clear tape. Susan says go for the Sharpie or the Bic!
With ink-jet only, the address got wet, then became blurry and ill-defined (see how it works?) and I never got Susan’s home-made Christmas cookies!
But we got a lesson out it, at least that’s clear to see!
One thought on “Blurry and Ill-Defined”
In Susan’s defense, she did actually cover the to and from addresses with packing tape. The packing tape got wet and lifted. MY lesson is this: Not ALL packing tape is waterproof and that maybe it is worth paying a few cents more to guarantee a water tight seal over the address label.
