"Drat! I'm down to my last elastic band, and it's too small to fit around this vital bundle of notes". "Don't worry - use this one." "That's very kind of you, but it's clearly far too small to do the job." "Ah yes, but if you just cut along the entire length of that dotted line, it will double in size." "Oh I see, I didn't notice that half twist - how odd"
