Day 2

I'm not sure what qualifies as "disappointing".  I could be a super-person and tell you that in all actuality I have a really hard time with people buying me gifts, how I'm sure that it's some underlying psychological issue that I should probably seek treatment for once I have a career and benefits that will cover it. Or how it's probably some kind of "I can't handle being the center of attention and I just do things for other people and I'm uncomfortable when they do things for me" but I won't. And today's prompt isn't about me right now, it's me as a child. And as a child, I loooved presents.

What was the most disappointing gift you received as a child?"

I don't remember ever being disappointed by a present, but it was probably socks, or clothes. I remember being disappointed by presents I didn't get, like an Easy Bake. But it works now, because I can blame all my "adult" quirks on not having an Easy Bake a child.
I've heard that they're not all they're cracked up to be, but still. A girl could dream.

See, doesn't it even just look lovely? It would have fit prefect in my
Little Tikes play kitchen....

Now that this post isn't all about the gift I never got, I'd have to say that my most disappointing gift as a child still stands at clothes. Or socks. I hated getting socks.
On a side note, I just read on my writing prompt that there is none for the weekends. Weekends are for "free writing". So what do I write about then?! Christmas-y things? My homework list? Someone needs to tell me the rules to the job I made for myself.


  1. Yes! I'm super excited about this. It will be fun. I promise.

  2. I think you will be sorry to get your Christmas present from me. It is too late to take them back and get you the easy bake oven :)

  3. Twinly I just love you! :) I had an easy bake oven when i was little. And by little I mean younger. Because I'm still little. :) we should have had easy bake oven parties. but maybe i had it after you got mad at me for eating all of your smarties that one time. :)
