    Wow, Siso. That's just... embarressing

    lol @ Siso
    It almost sounds like this is just the tip of the iceberg and you have plenty more stored away.

    She just glared at me for a really long time. I think either she was in shock or she was putting some kind of curse on me. I bet nobody had hit her for at least 50 years.

    I swear I'm not a violent person, I don't even spank my kid. The last time before that I'd hit someone was in 5th grade, I punched my best friend (who I'm still in touch with) in the nose because she was defending Nixon.

    The weirdest gift I ever got was from my Aunt and Uncle in New Jersey. I think they are a very close-knit family, but they gave us "Chicken Soup for the Family Soup Board Game" Yeah.. its a board game too! Anyways, so Iopen it up and they are questions like "What is your biggest secret?" and "What is the worst lie you have ever told?" Yeah RIGHT like I am going to tell my brother + dad + mom that!!! Geeeez!!! It is still sitting in the back of my closet. Anotehr game they gave us last year was a board game called Weird Science Facts or something like that... geeeez!!!!!!

    ETA - blindart.. that was hilarious!!!!!!!!

    I missed this thread the first time around. Too funny!

    My sister-in-law is a pretty normal, conventional person but has this quirk about gifts - she gives very strange ones. My brother long ago learned to shrug and let her do what she likes. I think it's because she grew up in poverty and even though she & my brother are well off, she just can't bring herself to spend money very easily.

    One year my husband, baby daughter & I got a packet of dry spaghetti sauce for Christmas. Another year the "family" present was a pair of glow-in-the-dark earrings. (My sister and her family got the same present, even though she doesn't have pierced ears, nor did her preschool aged sons.)

    One year she must have found a case of molding, fake leather coin purses in a back alley because we all got matching ones, complete with an identical stench of decay.

    She really is a nice, normal girl otherwise!

    Brillo pads.... 'nuff said. It was someones idea of a joke.... Long story so I wont bore you with the details. It shall suffice to say that the giving of it was this elaborate thing that they stopped class for. (I was 14 at the time)....

    What the heck were they thinking???
