One of the things that is most frustrating about Hello Kitty Hell is that many of the Hello Kitty items in our house aren’t really Hello Kitty Items at all. They are normal, every day items in Hello Kitty packaging. No matter how many times I try to explain this to my wife, it doesn’t make any sense to her. Hello Kitty on the package means that whatever is inside is also Hello Kitty related in some way (thusly the mind works of the Hello Kitty fanatics the around the world).
Take these for example:
They are CDs wrapped in Hello Kitty packaging, but they are the only ones my wife will buy. It doesn’t matter that the CD looks like any other CD once the packaging comes off. Since practically every item that exists comes in Hello Kitty packaging, you can begin to see the Hello Kitty Hell I must deal with on a daily basis
