I decided to try something new in this post… I need some feedback. You may answer one of the two questions, or both…
2. What is the WORST Christmas Present you ever received? Why was it so bad?
Feel free to add variations. Maybe you would like to share the best or worst gift YOU ever GAVE. Warning: Your response may or may not end up in a sermon. Just sayin’. 🙂
Have fun with it. I’ll go first…
1. The BEST Christmas gift I ever received was a pack of Warheads in my stocking. Santa somehow knew that was my favorite candy in the whole world. I really can’t even explain why it was so great. I received other wonderful presents that year and many great, expensive gifts in Christmases past. But when I pulled the Warheads out of my stocking that year, it was so very personal. I think the gift was so meaningful because it made me realize that my wife knew me. We had not really talked about how much I liked Warheads. She just knew. I know it sounds dumb, but that was more than the gift of candy. It was a gift of knowing. Vanessa knew me and that was a gift I’ll never forget.
2. The WORST Christmas gift I ever received was a pack of JellyBeans. [Why does this all involve candy? I don’t know. But it’s true.] These Jelly Beans were not the regular kind. They had awful flavors – some that are just unmentionable, really. One was vomit flavored, another was dirt. Others claimed to be flavored earwax or month-old banana. I cannot remember who gave me those, but I do remember the trauma it inflicted on my taste buds. They looked like regular Jelly Beans, so I popped one in my mouth before I read anything about them. Quickly I spit it out, but not before it had violently assaulted my taste buds. Blehhhhh…
