A letter to my brother

Dearest brother,
I would like to thank you so much for the thoughtful gift that you gave Aaron for his birthday this year.
This morning, Max found the gift and it kept him entertained for a good portion of the day.
Who would have thought that a four year old boy would find so much enjoyment out of an electronic fart noise maker.
Signed,
Your favorite sister
Jill

p.s. Just wait until you see what I got your girls for Christmas.

Adam's family loves crap like that. The fart machine is an old famous.

Forgive me a cruel chuckle. Mwahahaha.

lol. Love siblings. My brother's sister has always been kind enough to give us noisy and obnoxious toys. We keep promising to return the favor but I just can't bring myself to be that mean - especially given the, ahem, impish nature of her second child.

I hope you have a great time when company comes over.

I got our grandson one of those "popcorn popper" push toys. thank goodness I dont' have young kids...the payback would be a bitch.

My parents are always the ones that give my children the ridiculous gifts that "keep on giving".

Chief said...

I should get one of those for my husband! Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like a fart noise maker. ;o)

My brother and I have the same gift revenge going. A couple yeas ago, he gave my then-preschool-aged daughter a flying cow. It was the most annoying thing! This year, I am giving his kids a body wash dispenser shaped like a big nose...complete with green shower gel. It's going to be AWESOME.

This is always the classic at family gatherings...one year the brother-in-law stuck it under our bed in the guest bedroom...and waited in the bedroom above listening thru the heat vents...when we got into bed, the fun began...lots of noise...and lots of laughter coming from upstairs...including our children that he recruited to help out!
Please pray with me that they don't put it under the pulpit at church while the bishop is speaking...this has been suggested...and would be a very bad situation :(

One of the main reasons my children are afraid of having their own kids is that I plan on making them pay for their raisin'. Do you possibly know where I might get my hands on one of those magical mystical fart machines? MWAHAHAHAHA!

WV: NESSESSI - Items required to ensure that the parent of the gift recepient are driven stark raving mad as payback for some past transgression.
