The Christmas Tension

December 15, 2005

For these holidays, my mom’s just been telling me to get her a cuisinart griddler for christmas. When we went out sunday, we bought it, and stored it away where she wouldn’t be able to find it. Later that night, I did my usual sloppy wrapping job, slapped a tag on it, and stuck it in the corner where the tree was due to be put up.

Yesturday, the house was hectic because we had to put up the tree, and mom was a little aggervated because we hadn’t bought much stuff. Dad specifically hasn’t bought anything. He got her a book for her birthday, but not a whole lot of anything else.

Well, she had said something, and i was looking to add a little gas to the fire, so i put on my best lying face, and told her we had actually spent $190 on something else, because they didn’t have the griddler in stock.

At that point, she silently flipped out, and started being even more mean than before. Pouting in her chair, calling me and dad “fucking dumbass”, etc. Dad was acting offended, but as she stomped out of the room, he just smiled and laughed at me for that completely flawless lie. For the rest of that night, she was just irritated. She didn’t prepare our dinner like she usually does, she just left it sitting in the pot on the stove.

This morning, I woke up and she told me we have to buy more stuff for dad to even out the amount i spent on each of them. I had no choice but to tell her i was just messing with her, and we really did get the correct gift for the price she had expected. I still have to buy more stuff for dad to even out the amount I spent on each of them though.

Christmas tension has most members of the household irritated, anxious, and worried. I’m perfectly fine because I can already buy my own christmas. On top of that, I know the gifts i got for everyone will be enjoyed. Dad’s worried because his christmas bonus doesn’t come in until the 22nd or 23rd, and he doesn’t know how much he is getting. Going out to shop 3 days before christmas is going to be insane, but hopefully he’ll be able to score something she’ll enjoy.

On a side note, I’ve had to shut up about the bad things I do because members of my reality have found this blog. So, if my stories ever seem to portray me in an above-positive manner, you can try and imagine some combination of piracy, alcohol, tresspassing, porno, or hatred of some individual or group of people in the post, and you’ll more than likely be correct.

That’s all for now, have a nice day people.
