Adventures in Paperfolding

While teaching origami at the Chinese-American Museum Lantern Festival today in Los Angeles (with Jim Cowling and Chila Caldera), a mom was laughing hysterically saying I just gave her the quote of the week. Apparently in the midst of teaching her son how to fold a panda, I stammered at him, "Uh-uh-uh-uh!...Stop! Stop! You're hurting the paper!" She thought that was just the funnies thing.

Then there was this girl who was having a heck of a time folding the same panda no matter how I explained it to her and no matter how I tried to get her to think about it; I'd end up doing the folding maneuver for her, hand the model back...and then she'd hold it back up to me and say, "Like this?" (>_<)
