Wonka Vision?

I am a film geek.  I can’t count how many times a day I recall something as a film quote or scene from a movie.

That is exactly what happened yesterday, and I immedialty felt like I was reliving a scene from one of my favorite movies.

Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory.  I might know that film word for word.  Remember “Wonka Vision”?

 

(It isn’t my favorite scene, my favorite is when Gene Wilder sings “Pure Imagination” .  That scene is every fat kids dream!)

So, what happened to spark this scene in my mind?  I have been doing more you tubing lately.  There is one channel that I follow and check in with often.  Texas Gal Treasures.

I have been following this channel for a few weeks, since I started Merch by Amazon.  The “Texas Gal” Margaret does a bunch of walk throughs that I have found to be extremely helpful.  She does box openings so I decided to send a box with some jewelry in it.  My shop has a TON, and I am not exaggerating, A TON of jewelry.  I buy it by the pound, and one corner of the shop is dedicated to costume jewelry.  So I grabbed a random box and stuffed it with some jewelry and other odds and ends and sent it down to Texas.

Before I knew it, Margaret was opening the box.  I think it got there in 2 days, but it seemed immediate.  Unfortunately I missed the live box opening.  I saw it when I was checking back on youtube, and it was so cool and weird at the same time.  Weird in an alternate reality sort of way.  Most of the stuff was random stuff that was laying on one of my counters.  So to see it on the other side of the computer screen so fast was strange, sort of like when Mike TeeVee was sent in Wonka Vision!
I send out a bunch of packages every day because I sell on eBay & Etsy, but I never see where it actually goes to, so it was fun to see that.
As a side note, I do think this graphic is actually drawn to scale….
