...what is the absolute worst Xmas Present that you have received. I remember when I was 10 a friend of my mom's gave me what must have been Orson Well's jogging shorts, and I was just a tiny little kid!! My mom was so insulted she used them to lug potatoes up from the cool room.

....no wonder no one wanted it. Now if there was a clock perched on the monkey's head, well then it would have been snatched up in no time.

a friend that used to work with me gave me this statue thingy...it was a horse with a monkey on it & another one pulling it, in shades of pale pink & sea foam ( only about 5 years ago so pastels were not in fashion:()...went on & on how BEAUTIFUL he thought it would look on my cherry wood buffet. Not a visitor came by that didn't ask me what it was supposed to be...I left it in the lobby of my condo & NO ONE took it!! Months it sat there, it became our joke to see how long no one else would want it for:D

...just a couple of times when she was around. Fortunately, it was also too big for me, so I couldn't wear it that much. Phew!

A couple of years ago, my MIL gave me this hideous fuschia sweatshirt.

It was 100% polyester (ICK!) and had this horribly gaudy floral applique on it with glitter glue and swirls all over it.

LOL! :D

My poor MIL. She means so well....

Are you saying that my hubby has a dirty mind?? :D ;)

Really, if you saw me play volleyball, you'd know that he REALLY bought them for a totally innocent reason!!

...give your head a shake, he didn't intend for you to use them playing volleyball. Are you sure there wasn't a whip and a pistol in there amongst the kneepads!!

My hubby gave me a pair of kneepads as an anniversary gift last year. He figures I'll dive for the ball at volleyball if I have kneepads on. Wrong!! :D
