Needless to say, I was met with a scowl when she opened her "Happy Graduation" gift for ME!
"Is this mine or Riley's?" she seethed through her mouth full of clenched teeth.
"Yours! Aren't you excited?" I asked.
"Uhhh..Sure!", I heard as she trailed off to go play with a box of rocks....or anything else more exciting than her NEW "As Seen on TV" "Topsy Turvy" Tomato Planter!
A couple of days later I found it stuffed under Riley's bed, in between a sleeping bag and a box. "humpf!?" I thought as I drug the forgotten "Topsy Turvy" from the depths of darkness, "if she doesn't want it, maybe I can grow me a little something!" (even though I do detest TOMATOES!)
I opened the box to find alot of "Turvy", but really no "Topsy"! Inside the written instructions read:
1. "Put the plant in the bottom." (plant not included)
2. "Put soil in the bag." (soil not included)
3. "Add water in the bag." (water not included)
Like I said, alot of "Turvy", but not so much on the "Topsy". Heck I could've saved $19.99, if I knew NOTHING WAS INCLUDED!
The "Topsy Turvy" Tomato Planter is back in the depths of darkness under Riley's bed, and I am reminded on a daily basis that I still owe my 2nd Grade Graduate a "cool" present.
