Not so Fortunate

I needed white, Chinese take-out boxes for a project I'm doing for my daughter's school this week. I went to several stores, with no luck. I finally drove across town to a huge craft store. I thought Surely, my Chinese take-out boxes will be available there! I searched high and low, but this store was HUGE. I ran out of steam and finally asked a store associate, "Where do you keep your white, Chinese take-out boxes?" She went to ask a fellow associate, and when she got back she told me, "I'm sorry. We don't have them right now. Apparently, they are a seasonal item."

What I want to know is What season is appropriate for white, Chinese take-out boxes?

Okay, that made me laugh. How do they figure seasonal items?

My thoughts exactly!

How about just asking a Chinese take out for some extra boxes? I am always up for some free stuff!

I did find some multi-colored take-out boxes on clearance at another store. Next time, though, I will ask at my favorite restaurant! (Or go searching for them during Chinese New Year.) :)
