TELL ME A TALE IN 120 WORDS – December 2017


 Today’s prompt is:  Your worst Christmas.

In 2012 my father had not long died before Christmas arrived. My children thinking, I needed all the help I could get in establishing myself in my father’s old house had earlier given me a new dinner set, so all the plates we ate from were the same.

When Christmas Day came by, they arrived with a large box.

Inside was every sort of Tupperware you could imagine. Yes, they had gift-wrapped the box but not the contents, thank goodness.

They explained that since I was reluctant to say what I wanted they were quite prepared to give me a ‘dumb arse’ gift.

Tupperware is useful, but I have since made every attempt to give them suggestions.

    Tupperware…oh my goodness. Haven’t we all been through the Tupperware fad. I still receive the odd (in more than one sense of the word) invitation to a Tupperware party. “Thanks, but I think I might be out of the country that day.” 😀 LOL at least only the box was gift wrapped.

    ‘What do you buy someone who has everything?’
    Answer: An empty box to put it in.
