Before you continue reading this week's Tuesday's Question post,
please know that I love my mother-in-law...
"What was the WORSE gift you've
ever received for Christmas?"
Our first Christmas as husband and wife, my mother-in-law gave me a ROBE.
But not just any ROBE.
This was a MU-MU.
A big maroon robe and WAIT...
It gets better...
It had this zipper from the bottom of the robe up to the neck.
AND it was a SHORT robe.
That's right, it came right down to my knees.
I really didn't know what to say.
I politely smiled and told her how lovely the robe was.
And to make things even more uncomfortable,
my mother-in-law proudly told me that she
bought the same one for herself!
Just what every NEWLYWED wants!
I asked the Colonel today's Tuesday Question
to see if he would know what the worse gift I've ever received was
and, of course, in true typical MAN-thinking,
he promptly said, "No."
I explained to him all about the robe and he started laughing
and told me that he didn't remember this at all!
He THEN asked me WHERE THE ROBE WAS!
I told him it was promptly exchanged for a lovely purse and umbrella!
And just for the record, my mother-in-law
is really my husband's stepmother.
My husband's mother passed away when he was only 20.
Phil's father remarried Virginia a year before the
Colonel and I were married.
She is a very lovely lady,
who currently lives in Washington State,
and DOESN'T OWN A COMPUTER!
worse Christmas gift has been!
