For me, it’s a toss-up between the Trader Joe’s chocolate covered raisins or the Bally’s exercise ball my mom got as a favorite.
After Mom knocked over a gigantic container of raisins, she and Dad spent twenty minutes picking them off the floor. We watched Dad put them right back in the container and eat them. Mom put hers in a napkin and kind of rubbed them around before returning them into the container.
But the best was when Husband tricked me into thinking I had one more gift to open. He said, “it’s under the couch” and I got excited and got down on the floor and saw about 10 renegade raisins the folks missed.
The other fun part of the night was Mom’s exercise ball — given to her by Husband for her back. Everyone took a turn on it to do abs, and everyone wiped off right off the ball. Hee hee.
P.S. I can’t wait for “Medium” to come back.
P.P.S. This was the first year my father bought us xmas gifts. He got us all book marks, including one for Mom, which featured the first letter of her name in bedazzled glory. I wonder what happened that changed his mind.
