Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not a big Christmas person. I don't mind going up to the attic to get down the tree and decorations but I hate the fact that in the New Year I have to put it back up. There was the year that I had mice in the attic and I didn't bother going up in the first place!
This year is going to be different. I'm going to start earlier and get value out of the festive season. I've decided to buy a few bits every week so I'm well and truly ready come December. Today I picked up a box of Christmas crackers along with my weekly groceries.
As she was scanning it through the till, the cashier looked at it, looked up and me and then let a wry smile. I obviously looked perturbed as she went on to explain.
"The till has just said that it needed ID to prove you are over 18, in order to buy these crackers!"
I was getting all excited thinking about what could possibly be in that festive box,....Liquor? Dope?
The cashier burst my bubble when she said
"There's probably a scissors or something sharp in there."
Well, what did I expect for E4.99!!!
