Pandas, What Was The Worst Christmas Gift You've Ever Received?
There was a gift under the tree when I was 13 which was a big box with my name on it. True to my nature, I never touched it. When it was passed out to me by my father(Dad always handed out the gifts) I started unwrapping it only to find another wrapped box. I unwrapped that to find yet another wrapped box. Suffice it to say that not only did the boxes get smaller and smaller but were also wrapped in black tape, then duct tape, packing tape and stuff until I ended up with a little 2" by 8" box. When I finally got that open, there was a carrot in it.And it was fresh. I being the type of kid asked first..... Dad. How is this so fresh when it's been under the tree for a month. He answered that they had replaced the original box with this one last night. Next question...Dad, why did you give me a carrot. The doc says my eyes are 20-20. I was feeling more than a little hurt by now. Worst Christmas joke ever in my opinion. Dad told me that it was for my new pet and I would have to give it to it and meet it. I thought to myself, oh great. Now I gotta rabbit along with all the cats, dogs, chickens, cows, pigs, ponies and a couple of others. We had two sheep and a stupid goat too. I was wrong. Dad took me out to the barn where I was greeted with a nicker and introduced to Sadie. A big beautiful Palomino mare. WOW! My own horse. All I can say without writing a whole story. The carrot I got turned into gold and many years of companionship and pleasure. Thanks Dad!
