Sorry, I was so Sluggish in Posting! (Space Slug Gift Wrapping)

M4P friend Gene Ha will tell you this gift wrap is NOT a space slug, it is a lobster claw… 

Of course he has a compelling argument…  He bought the Admiral Ackbar bobble-head that was inside for me (yeah!!!), AND he created the wrapping.  And as all of Gene’s fans know, Gene has a somewhat warped sense of humor, so a lobster claw wrapping makes perfect sense to him.  Calamarian… Red gourmet seafood… Lobster.
