Assembly required - My mother had gotten my little
brother a little peddle car. As with most gifts of this size "some assembly
required". Three people with collage degrees, me in junior high, fifty
million parts, and an instruction booklet (written in German). Lucky for
us I was at the end of my first semester of German! Well to say the least,
one semester does not give you enough of a language to read instructions,
but it does give you a textbook, to translate some of the words. It was
nicely assembled as the sun was coming up.
Three kittens + one large Christmas tree. Need
I say any more???
My ex-true Love, the last minute shopper. You know
those last minute shoppers. Wait until Christmas Eve, you get some of the
best buys. As usual he waited until Christmas Eve, only this year something
went wrong, he had to work late. With one bicycle, waiting at the toy store,
and about 20 other gifts to be picked out. The race against the clock was
on. He got to the toy store just before closing. He loaded the fully assembled
bike in his VW bug, and dropped it off. Now only one little drug store
was open. Shelves picked over, people ready to go home, he did his shopping.
Its now sixteen years later, I still have the cologne he bought for me
I was fifteen and we had my brother and his new wife over
for Christmas. Later that evening, my brother, his wife and I all
went out for a drive. Well, being a curious teenager, I wanted
to see what it was like to smoke a cigarette. I nearly choked to
death. That was enough to cure me for several years, but my brother's
wife had other ideas. To teach me a lesson, she took me down to the
local police station and reported me to the police! Needless to say,
I was terrified. The cop, however, was tired and in no mood to do
paper work. he just gave her a look and said to get out of there.
We did and though it took me several years to forget that Christmas, I
look back on it now and smile. Too bad her plan didn't work out.
