My parents know me so well, except, of course, a RISK LEGO set (which doesn’t exist) would’ve been awesome. As for Lego Chess? Well, now I’ve got to learn how to play Chess!
I also got a vaccum cleaner, but took care to read consumer reviews about it before unpacking it. Judging by those reviews, I returned the cleaner this morning and used it towards a Dyson (it’s purple, and has lots of tools, and I’m looking forward to vaccuming my apartment later). Yes, I’m eating my words.
The rest of the gifts range from the useful to the ecclectic (an orange has been staple stocking stuffer since I was a kid). Three stones, Japanese obos; sketch pad and sketch pens; gift cards and cash; a book on responsible financial management; toothpaste, soap, and a box of Mr. Clean’s “Magic Eraser.”
(Speaking of RISK, I recently learned that Star Wars Original Trilogy RISK has been released, as has JUNIOR RISK: NARNIA. Unfortunatly, I was unable to find either today at Target).
