Happy 3rd Advent, everyone!
We’re slowly approaching Christmas and without wanting to put too much emphasis onto presents, this week’s question is “What’s the weirdest present you’ve ever received?”
Yes, I have to admit, I’ve received weird ones, but honestly, they must’ve been overly weird, because I’ve forgotten about them – Of course I’ve received the knick knack “Kriss Kringle” presents, which when you unwrap the little parcel you go “What the?” in your mind. The knick knack that you put somewhere in the furthermost corner of your cupboard or shelf.
The “weird” present I want to tell you about today, though, was from my husband. In all fairness, it wasn’t actually weird, more … hmm … unexpected, and not quite sure what-to-do-with-it-present: a voucher for a tattoo. Yes, a tattoo voucher. Don’t faint, I liked the idea. Actually, I’d got a tattoo already and had always thought I’d like to have another one. But … the pain … the design … the time … the “location”. I never got to decide on all of them with a definite “Yes”, it was just one of those “unaccomplished ideas”. And then I got the voucher. Ack! The pressure was on. I’m usually very good with pressure. If everyone lets me winge a bit, I work best under pressure.
What to do with the voucher … what to decide?
Well – I decided to return it to my husband. I’m still very thankful that he wasn’t angry, but understood. It’s not like you can put these pictures onto your body and after five years wipe it off, is it. Anyway, a real nice tattoo of the Southern Cross now decorates his arm 🙂
This is your chance … tell us about this really weird present you received once!
