They said they had a great time, but it could have been better.
You wanna know how it could have been better? huh? huh? huh?
So they took it upon themselves to send us a brand spankin' new hand mixer.
(Insert evil mad scientist laugh here.) They walked right into our sneaky little trap.
See, when we have visitors we hide all the good stuff and pull out all of the junk stuff.
Then we make our guests use the junk stuff.
(chuckle chuckle chuckle)
I made my SIL mash a whole bowl of REAL potatoes with one beater. (snicker snicker) And now I've got myself a brand new hand mixer.
(heh heh heh)
When my hub's brother brought his family a few years ago, they asked us if they could use our cooler to keep their Diet Coke chilled while they soaked up some sun. We put their sodas in a garbage bag and emptied all of our ice cube trays on top. Then my hub did the hokey pokey, slung the bag over his shoulder and said "HO HO HO."
We've secured 3 coolers that way. All thank you gifts from disgruntled guests.
We've also raked in a toaster, three blenders, two new mops, a crock pot, a toilet, and a hoover upright vacuum cleaner. (For some reason guests hate sweeping the carpet with a broom.)
Sometimes, when we get doubles, we sell our gifts on e-bay because we subscribe to the reduce, reuse, recycle philosophy (and we love extra cash).
So peeps, if any of you need a place to stay on your next trip to Hawaii, let me know. We've got plenty of room.
(And we need a new van-down-by-the-river).
P.S. Anyone wanna buy a hand mixer?
