Eskimo Sand Paper

Sand paper is paper that is made out of sand instead of really thin papery rocks like regular paper is made out of. The Inuit of the igloos knew this long before White people ever inhabited this continent. They kept it secret because they didn’t have trees to sand the splintery wood of until it was smooth. It was already smooth. It was so smooth that it wasn’t even there. That’s why they had to keep the sand paper away, because the wood was already so smooth that it wasn’t even there. If it was any smoother, it would be there even less. Then, when they needed it, it wouldn’t be there until way later and then it would be too late. That’s why there’s the old saying “Don’t give an Inuit sandpaper.”
