Once Upon A Time...

... long, long ago, I was naughty.  

For Christmas, I got this... 


(coal wrapped in red tissue paper)

Sure hope I had fun, I don't remember!

I never understood why you were given coal when you were naughty.

Gigi said...

I'm sure you had a blast being naughty enough to earn coal!

Karen said...

What is that... playdough?

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

I apologize for my ignorance because I've never seen a piece of coal all my life... (charcoal, yes).

But is that the proper colour for a coal? Or that's candy? :P

Mamma has spoken said...

Hehehe, just yesterday I had a student tell me he got a lump of coal for Christmas last year and he said he didn't know why everyone complains about it because it tasted just like candy!

blueviolet said...

Well, you couldn't have been too bad, because your coal isn't even black.

Then again, it's red, so perhaps your coal is still burning.. boy, you WERE a naughty girl. ;)

Are you sure its coal? It looks like something that came from somewhere else (insert poo joke here)

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

I'm sure you did and I bet it was worth it!

Copyboy said...

The top part looks like a casino chip. Maybe that was your gift.

Mommie Dearest Strikes Again said...

HA HA HA!!

I hope you had fun, too!

B said...

I want it!

Sally said...

One year when my daughter was about 8, my mom put switches in her stocking. Patti cried all day. I never understood that either. :(

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

i LOVE your sense of humour!
you're fab!

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Gee I hope you were too!
While I have had many years that I deserved coal I have yet to receive it. :-)

George said...

Since you kept this 'gift', I assume that was the only time you got on the naughty list.

Furry Bottoms said...

Hehe I love that!

Deborah said...

Well, you know, it's always better to ask forgiveness than permission.

At least that's the motto I rule my life by. lol

Betsy from Tennessee said...

HA ----I know some people and KIDS who need that for Christmas this year...

My friend's grandsons are SO bad (behavior) that they do not deserve anything for Christmas. What has happened to discipline when it comes to kids these days???? Gads...

Hugs,
Betsy

NCmountainwoman said...

Guess that explains why Christmas is not your favorite holiday!

Ami said...

I knew you were one of those girls my mom told me would be a bad influence.

But you know, I sleep with Santa. And boy! Is it ever worth being on the naughty list!!

Lori G said...

"ONCE"???
LOL I don't buy that at all!
((((((((Hugs))))))))

Help! Mama Remote... said...

If you don't remember....i think you did have.fun. LOL

Choleesa said...

You had soooo much fun, that you cant even remember.

middle child said...

I have given Christmas cards that say...."You're the reason Santa even HAS a naughty list."
Also have given snowman poop. There's a poem that goes along with mini-marshmallows in a plastic sandwich bag. Something that ends with..."so here's the scoop. All you get is snowman poop."

Naughty or nice I always think you are terrific. Hugs!

Katherines Corner said...

naughty or nice I always think you are terrific! Hugs!

Pat Tillett said...

Ha! That is so awesome!

Marlene said...

I can't imagine you ever being naughty. I think Santa delivered to the wrong house by mistake. I'm sure I got your Barbie. ;)

Sarah said...

I think the best kind of naughty is the kind you (mercifully?) don't remember and instead you're left with the thought, "Why are there nylons all over the house and why are they stuffed with chickens?"

Ms. A said...

Sarah, the fact that someone your age, would use the term "nylons", kills me!

The Empress said...

WhAT??

NO DETAILS?

Oh, such a tease.

Vicki Lane said...

I love that you saved it!

gmarch53 said...

Coal is my Middle name LOL

CiCi said...

How long ago is long, long ago?

Shrinky said...

Oooooooooh, I'm gonna' write Santa right now for one of those..! I'll bet the year you qualified for that, has a lot of tales you can tell (grin).

LV said...

I cannot image you getting this. And, then keeping it. I am sure it was all in fun.

Tracie said...

I never got coal but one year my mom made me return all my presents after I opened them. (I was 19 and ran up her credit card.) Good times.

Well it is a pretty shade of red.

And the countdown continues. It will be over before we know it (so long as we keep saying that). Hang in.

Sarah said...

I'm sure it was well worth it. Was it from your mom? :)

Jenny said...

I love this. . .

I hope you had fun too. . .

My best wishes for a blessed and beautiful holiday for you and yours...

DWei said...

Once I got my brother (as a joke) a pack of batteries wrapped with the note "Batteries, toy not including".

He was not amused.

Momma Fargo said...

It will be a diamond someday...worth lots of money. :)

Not So Simply Single said...

THAT is hilarious! I needed a good laugh, thank you!

Yum-Yum said...

WE only hope that whatever mischief you did to earn such esteemed lump of coal was really, really WICKED! Ha-ha-ha, for that is always mischief of the BEST QUALITY!

~mel said...

My daughter once received a lump ... a big lump, about the size of a football of cement. I guess Santa couldn't find any coal that year. She still has it!! Here's wishing you a coal-less Christmas!
