and threw it across the room. On it was written, "I heard you needed some pads. From Santa"
The boys were outraged. "What kind of sick joke is this?" "Who gave this to us?" And they immediately blamed Grandma..............who didn't deny it. But no one fessed up or explained.
A couple of presents later, there was another package addressed to both of them. Garrett opened it: Written on the outside was "I heard you needed some pads. From Santa." This wasn't tossed across the room with the same vehemence, but the boys moved on to other gifts quickly, without trying to interpret the gift.
Finally, close to the end of present opening, there was one more gift addressed to both of them. They argued over who was going to get to open it. I don't remember who won, but they opened this:.
Parker was confused. Garrett got it right away. After clueing Parker in, they asked, "Okay...........we need pads! Where are they???"
These were too bulky to wrap and plus we're mean and like to play jokes even on that most loving day of the year. We cannot help ourselves. We're sick and twisted like that.
I directed them to the dining room, where resting on chairs, they found the pads! The REAL pads. The pads they needed.
