I’m like a kid – I’ll play with the boxes and ribbons instead of the present – as proven here.
A basket of goodies came and I was all over those ribbons like a cat. Okay, a naughty cat, but when it comes to someone holding a camera – I have to be a ham (or, a chocolate pasty stripper?!)
My son called later in the day.
Nic: The UPS man is here
(I hear Butters barking like crazy in the background)
Nic: Says ‘perishable’ – I’m openin’ it.
Me: Who’s it addressed to?
Me: Then you’re not openin’ it
Nic: Oooo …. working on the corners
Me: Nic don’t!
I play a game called Big Fish – been playing it for years. When you’re a hermit, you still need entertainment – and it’s a free social casino type game. Fun fun!
Anyway, I got an email a few days back saying they’d like to send me a gift.
Responded to email – it was legit.
Came home and opened the box – ok, Nic ended up openin’ it – and inside:
Here’s what was inside:
It was only later Nic and I had the same realization –
“Aren’t those candy apples in the news??”
We decided they meant the hard caramel/toffee kind and chocolate covered were fine.
Nic also made dinner tonight. I’m swamped with holiday miracles!
Ok – maybe the aftermath was not such a miracle – but I decided to choose my battles – be VERY grateful for the meal (it was delicious) and do the dishes for him. 😉
Afterall, ’tis the season of giving. Giving the chef a break. 🙂
