My mom is amazing. Very amazing. Extravagantly amazing.
She can break scissors while cutting Velcro.
It happened today at noon before we went to the dorm. We had just cleaned out the truck and mom was fixing the center storage between the front seats so she grabbed Velcro and scissors. She started cutting the Velcro…and the scissors broke at the first cut.
These were perfectly good, well taken care of, scissors.
It broke on the pivot joint that let the blades move. Just broke off. The blades and handles are still intact. We now have two halves of a scissor.
I have the pieces in my drawer. I will keep them forever. As proof of how amazing my mother is.
