Things You Don't Want to Find in the Tub

Posted by Mike on November 6, 2004 1:46 PM

Gollum might be something you wouldn't want to find in your tub, and so is Princess. It appears that the Infernal Gift has found its way back into our home after being away for two years.

What's an infernal gift?

After that, an infernal gift can be pretty much anything. The important part is that it stay on the move. And if you can get someone to accept it freely (but unwittingly), then the tribe will sing your praises to the stars. If you can't get someone to accept it freely and can rid yourself of it all the same, perhaps by claiming that you're remodeling your bathroom and need the use of your dear friends' shower and then leaving the infernal gift behind, well... you win, too.

For now, Princess will abide in our home and await the stirring of her inevitable wanderlust. When she's had enough of our hospitality, she'll walk the earth again. And someone will be sorry.


aw! he got you with the old "i'm remodeling my bathroom" trick? well, i must say the pink tile, uh, becomes her. :)

Do I even dare ask what that is that might be bathing with my nephew?

I was just telling the Princess story to my 82 year old grandmother! I wasn't able to describe her actual ugliness correctly. (They were like ... well, but is it a bear? What is it?) And words failed me.
