The musical Wicked was coming to Chicago and I bought two tickets. Now to wrap them. One thing the Ferguson's (previous owners) had left behind were a lot of bricks. Okay, I admit it was low hanging fruit, but I wrapped the tickets in a yellow brick. Surprisingly, I burned through 2 or 3 masonry bits creating a hole large enough to insert a tiny Wicked poster. Cemented that shut, painted the brick bright yellow and tied it with a red ribbon.
Pictured above, the brick is awaiting discovery on the mantle Christmas Day 2005. Yet another gift that required the use of a chisel (and tweezers). This one wasn't going to break if dropped on the driveway.
The show was wicked.
