One time two new dining room chairs showed up on our front porch. They came in a large box with a lot of packaging. The chairs were all wrapped up and one was stacked upside down on top of the other. In between the two chairs was a box — maybe one foot by two feet. It was an ordinary cardboard box. It was closed and taped shut with packing tape. Printed on the outside of it were these words: “Void Filler.”

Void Filler.

I was fascinated by this box. Here are two chairs, and then here is this box that is taped shut with the words “Void Filler” on it.
