In all these cases, when you show up — or send over — the thing that they usually have to special order (or fix, by picking out the all-too-often-always-included unwanted additions), you’re effectively making what some people might call a little dream come true. (Other people, myself included, believe that there is no such thing as a little dream. Dreams are all one size — larger than life.)

2. Origami Them A Heart
