Now, another post-Christmas blog.
Let me begin by telling you my house sits on a one acre lot with twenty trees in front and over thirty trees in the back. This will be important later.
In my family there is a giver of carefully thought out useless gifts. I in my novice attempt to out useless her, I gave her a cake stand. She lives in the mountains and baking is out of the question, high altitude and all. I was giggling to myself until I opened the gift she had for me. But first other victims.
To the person who is allergic to scents of any kind, she gave perfume and highly scented candles. Though I appreciate the hives, not cool.
To the person who has all hardwood floors, a carpet steamer. Good one, a chore.
To the guy with body hair, knit shirt. Need I say more, though I appreciate the attempt at werewolf inspiration.
To a single woman over 20, underwear and flannel pajamas. Don’t complain that she’s single if you buy her and Gramms matching gifts.
And to me, she really went all out. I got a gift, errand and a chore. She gave me a tree. One I have to pickup in a large truck, drag back to my house, get a hole dug and then plant. I learned my lesson, do not try to out gift the master.
And to my fellow suffers, there’s a bottle of tequila and a white elephant gift exchange in my room.
Hey, who brought the cake plate?
