Wow, I never thought I’d say I was glad this contest is over, but whoo! I was so overwhelmed with entries that none of my of timelines stuck because I was still sifting through them all. When FREE is on the table, people come out of the woodwork….lol Seriously though, the response to the contest was fantastic and it was great to read through all of the very touching, heart warming and hilarious family moments of all of you.
Due to time restrictions, and the fact that I just couldn’t let the reveal day slip by, a small elite panel of judges voted on this month’s winner. Next go ’round I’ll be amply prepared now that I know you all are really reading! Ideally, I’d like to put some of the runners up later this week…. Ideally.
Without further ado, Congratulations Donna K. of Boise, ID for earning the funniest family story title this month and your winning prize the Clementine Natural Art Set!:
Enjoy everyone! Hope this story makes you giggle as much as it did us. Mind you, I’ve never smoked ANYTHING a day in my life, but this story had all of us cackling like hyenas.
“A few years ago, for Christmas, my brother, who lives way out of state, sends down a big UPS box that arrives at our mother’s house when my sister, her family, my other brother and his family, and me and my family are gathered getting ready for dinner. Our mom decided to take all the kids and go run last minute errands.
So, we unpack the box, which is filled with presents, each nicely wrapped. And at the bottom is a small plastic bag filled with an herb that looks suspiciously like….well, you can guess. There’s a tag attached that says, “A little extra Christmas cheer.”
Well, my sister, her husband, ny brother and his wife, and me all look at each other, and my brother produces some rolling papers (don’t know how or why he had them but he did). A few minutes later, we’re smoking a doobie on my mother’s back deck. My husband’s buddy shows up, and he decides he wants to smoke as well. We’re all sitting around toking, speculating on the quality of the the smoke.
On Christmas afternoon, my brother calls and asks how we liked our gifts. After the usual Christmas chitchat, he asks, “Well, how did the cat like hers?” My sister asks, “What are you talking about?”
“Well, the catnip I sent her for Christmas.,,,,,” We all started howling.
So the catnip story comes up every Christmas now.” — Moral of the story? Ah, where to start – there are so many!
Don’t do drugs!!!! – And stay AWAY from the Catnip! lol
