List Noted

I received an email from P-Squared regarding Little Boy Blue's Christmas list.

Little Boy Blue revealed his wish list a few weeks ago when in Target. I took notes. Some of the Lego toys are under $20. He tore the pictures out of a catalog and keeps them handy to look at and covet. Er, I mean, dream.

P-Squared then listed five different Lego sets.

I noticed he'd copied all the siblings minus Little boy. I took the opportunity to respond first.

Dad, since I wasn't at Target with you, my wish list is unknown. To be helpful, I've responded with my list. I like
- a new car
- a road bike (I'll even settle for one that's only $1,000)
- tuition paid in full

Then the email responses snow-balled. First from TheDeanInc.

Since we are all laying this out there, I want:
- a 3 year old BMW M3 (not as picky on the 'new' part that Charlotta wants)
- some new jeans, preferably True Religions.
Scratch that...just get me some very high valued Nordstrom gift cards.

Next from P-Squared himself:
Well, if we're revealing, I want
- a new truck. Then Johnny can drive my truck.
- some new shirts and slacks.
- a replacement of the Acura for (me) mama mia

- a new garage door
- or shingles for the house.
Nothing TOO costly.

Then Johnny commented:
That's an ugly truck, no offense, but if you're the one driving it, then SURE, go for it!

And finally Smelly Shelly wrote:
I need these. (She's enrolled in Dental Hygiene school) They range from $700 - 900 but I don't know if that includes a prescription.

- this car
...or the SUV
...or a black Range Rover


I hope Mama Mia wants a new four car garage...

I vote for the road bike. At least it's fuel-efficient.

May Santa Claus grant all your family’s vehicular Christmas wishes!
And, oh yeah, those Lego ones too… ;)

Shankar, my votes for that as well.

Beth: I think there are going to be a LOT of surprised faces on Christmas morning. ...and not the kind when you get what you asked for. :o)

I love that everyone included picutes... so as to not be misunderstood.

I asked my mom for snow shoe. She, in turn, interpreted it as winter boots until Kaylin corrected her. And this was my mom's reply, "Those are too expensive!" when in reality they're about $100. Lame. Maybe she'll go to the PayLess and buy me some boots.

Ok so I'm assuming that your dad got a new job making in the 7-8 digits....tell him congrats for me!

Oh man, that's some good stuff.

Legos are cool, though. I'd probably still play with them if it were socially acceptable.
