|Oodles of Underwear|
Cory: Hey, Jeff, what did you get from Mom and George for Christmas?
Jeff: Socks, underwear, a new toothbrush, shirts, pants. The usual.
|A Trove of Toothbrushes|
Cory: Yeah, me too. I have a pile of underwear that could rival the landfill near Quiet Waters Park.
Jeff: Me, too. How much underwear can you wear at one time, anyway? I have an idea. Let's do an Amazon.com Wish List for Mom to look at. Then we can get cool electronic stuff that we REALLY need!
|Another good idea is born!|
And the wish list was born. So now shopping is easy.
|These toilets are made from dollar bills!|
|For that personalized traditional ornament.|
It's easier for my sister, who likes anything tacky like horrible movies and things with toilet-related themes, such as tree ornaments, etc.
This year, I had no more than the usual shopping stress online. Of course, there are the ratings to fill out so that the vendors can get their online compliments. I must admit that I felt a trifle weird filling out the survey on my sister's gift, a computer mouse pad with "Paging Dr. Doody" on it, a steaming picture of dog doody on it. It was from the Mr. Poo Company, in case you are interested.
The hardest thing I tried to do was to find a dress for my son's wedding online. Whatever possessed me to do that I don't know. I think I was still on some heavy duty meds from my hospital stay.
I searched and searched for a dress that would make me look like Jennifer Aniston or even just Phyllis Diller, but it was an uphill battle. Finally I found a 2 piece dress that looked good, was the right size and was pretty.
I took a gamble on it. The dress was beautiful. The chiffon skirt was very pretty and the beaded top lovely. And the price? Excellent! I oh'ed and ah'ed as I removed it from its package. I hurried to try it on.
I could not get it down past my neck without severe respiratory difficulty. So sad.

Oh, and...she hoped that I would give her a good rating on the E-Bay listing. When pigs fly, baby!
