A painter discovered my parents at a store and her delicate stroke of brushes made them precious.

I was folded, glued and found myself hanging in a gift shop. My heart danced with joy when a lady bought me before boarding her flight. I said to myself, “I will be as memorable as my ancestor’s.”

Alas, everybody appreciated the linen I carried.

I am a ‘Handmade’ paper bag standing alone discarded in the corner of a room.

  1. Wow very creative. The pressure of keeping up family expectations and traditions, so obvious here. A quick, witty read. Very Nice.
