Middle Sister put together a gift for me a while ago. She put it in a big pink gift bag and warned me not to look in it.
Later she got a different gift bag for the gift and put it under the Christmas tree. The tree is right behind my desk I was warned not to look in it, and so far I’ve been good. It’s been there at least a week now.
Tonight, when Big Brother was wondering if participating in a conspiracy qualified as being bad or good, I told him that being in a conspiracy to get his mother a nice gift and do double chores for the next year would be a good one.
Middle Sister reminded him that she had made me a gift. I told him that I even knew where it was. He wanted to know if I had peeked, and I promised that I had not.
Middle Sister said that Big Brother could look in the bag–but that he probably wouldn’t know what the gift was.
Then she laughed hysterically.
But I’ll have to wait until Christmas morning to find out if I know what the gift is….
