This month we are discussing that one item that you received as a gift that you absolutely HATED. I mean despised. I mean you wanted to toss your cookies because it was that awful. Oh my friends – this is going to be a great one that I’m going to let my mom do. Yes, it’s that good. Are you ready? Here we go – tighten your seat belt it’s going to be a bumpy ride – snorts
This happened a long time ago… really long time ago. Mom and dad were still dating at the time. Dad thought he would do something very sweet for mom and wanted to buy her a leather jacket. Awesome huh? So dad went out and bought mom a leather jacket. He brought it to her and he was so excited about it. He was so proud of what he had done. Something so touching – who wouldn’t want a leather jacket.
Mom opened the box and peaked into the box. That’s when things changed. Mom was excited about getting a leather jacket out of the blue. She was not so excited about the color. Daddy had gotten mom a PURPLE leather jacket. Purple. There’s nothing wrong with the color purple. Mom loves that color. But when she put on the purple leather jacket and looked into the mirror – oh my piggy heavens. She looked like BARNEY! Do you remember Barney? I love you – You love me Barney. Shakes piggy head.
You can imagine that conversation between mom and dad right there over the purple leather jacket. Oh, and mom politely declined its acceptance and explained to daddy why. Of course he understood there and didn’t think about Barney. He said mom was beautiful in it – no one would ever mistake her for a singing dinosaur. But, just in case you know mommy still said no.
