      Worst and best

      by nicknielsen

      In reply to Ok I get some bad and some good

      The worst has to be a tie like one of these – http://tinyurl.com/yvkffb – I was 12 when I got it and still remember how ugly it was.

      The best? The best Christmas present I’ve ever received was Christmas week in Rome (won at a military Recreation Center). The best Christmas present I’ve never received would be a brand new NetTool (http://tinyurl.com/2bffa8)…if somebody wants to give me one! :^0

        the battery pack!!!

        Hmmm. Oops, just checked my bank account and looking at a stack of bills. Sorry, maybe next year! That is, unless a few people want to split the cost with me…

          Well! That is a lie, and this close to Christmas I need to be good (Or Santa may Skip me)…
          Besides, I have too many electrocuted souls this year to make up for. :^0

          Merry Christmas!!!

        Your choice of family. That thing is too ugly to merely trash. Tell me you burned it!

        I do believe that the worst gift I have ever received was a blouse that re-defined ugly. Some poor soul at the Goodwill ended up with it.

        The best was NOT being diagnosed with cancer.

          Boy, did I screw up! 馃榾

          Actually, Tig, I don’t remember exactly what happened to that tie. I know I wore it once to church (“You have to wear it because your [6-year-old] brother gave it to you!”), but don’t remember what happened to it afterward. I wasn’t good at throwing things away then, so I suspect it hung around somewhere until my Mom cleaned out my old clothes for a church jumble sale. Any clothing left over from those went to the Salvation Army.

      It can sit on my desk next to my “Easy” button. I can press it whenever some nitwit starts harassing Beth. Life would be grand!

        Do you think people on the freeway will move back to the right after passing if I put an Easy button in the car?

          sound effects to your cars speakers. When it BOOMS, I am sure people will swerve, or just leave the freeway. :^0

          Doors that open to reveal the noses of missiles. Tie them to the left turn signal; leave it on more than 30 seconds and the door opens and the “missiles” appear. :0

          Definitely gets your attention in the rear-view mirror. :^0

          Not that anybody here in SC uses their rear-view… 馃槓
