Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month. It takes everyone in blogville to have a party every month 🙂
This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are highlighting the funniest gift you have been given.
At Christmas when mom/dad were first starting to date, both sides of parents would have get together’s for dinner and presents. Around the 2nd or 3rd year of mom/dad dating, they were gathered at mom’s parents house for presents. They would pass presents around and each person would open them up while others watched. This particular Christmas had two funny gifts.
One was for mom’s mom (my Nana) that was from dad. One day dad heard Nana telling Grandpa that she absolutely loved pickles and she couldn’t get enough of them. Well, dad wanting to please her, fixed her up. He went to our local Sam’s Club and bought Nana the biggest jar of pickles he could find. One gallon of awesome dill pickles all to herself. What a guy huh?
The same Christmas, mom also got a present from daddy. She opened it up and it held nothing but band-aids and bandages of all assortment. Mom was confused at most while others wondered too what was this about. That’s when mom found the card in the box from daddy. It said, “You look as good to me as a bare ankle to a rattlesnake and I’m going to be all over you.” Various shades of red on mom’s face can not explain the embarrassment and trying to explain the box without reading the note.
