sticking a box away on the shelf
So let's say you tried a couple out of a box, and you figure they need some time. Box looks fairly well made. So you want to put this box to bed six or eight months. You know that new kind of plastic wrap that sticks to itself? Say you stuck a humidipak or two where the sticks you fliched used to be, you wrap it up with several layers of that stuff, and you set it away on the shelf. Once a month or so you open it up to stir the contents. Would that work?
“It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)
