The Blue Box

Pandora herself couldn't make such a mess. The Blue Box has to be opened slowly, but even so 35 years of calligraphic sketches explode onto the floor. I'm not sure how this started. The Blue Box arrived from Houston halfway through the 1980s filled with chocolate mint Girl scout cookies (used to be my favorites before the Belgians taught me what chocolate actually is), Hook 'em Horns coffee mugs and who knows what else.
