100 Masters Invitation

And so on.

The WAG is sending out hundreds upon hundreds of invites for the 100 Masters exhibit - super cool folded cards highlighting the masterpieces coming to town. The invites intricately fold together, like the top of a box. And someone needs to fold them.

So for three-ish hours this morning. I folded assembly line style. Not my favourite task ever. Actually, it's kind of brutal as office work goes. Mindless folding, folding, folding.

But I don't want to whine; that's boring (more so than folding invites). I DO want to pump the tires of the volunteer team who were here this morning, giving up their own time to get the invites into the mail and into your hand.

I'm at least getting a college credit for my time here. They're doing it just for the love of art. And they are absolutely BUZZING about the upcoming show - several confessed to having "the tingles."

So thanks for volunteering! You're super rad.
