- At Home
I've always tried to create enjoyable childhood memories by integrating all the wonders that the Christmas holidays had to offer, even if it meant I'd be up for hours on Christmas Eve trying to assemble toys for my kids. Oh the frustration! After a couple of glasses of wine I'd give up. Then I'd have another glass of wine. When it came to assembling new toys, I was somewhat challenged. Where the front of the box read "some assembly required", it should read "some parts will probably be missing and may cause frustration and aggravation. You may experience sweating, uncontrollable cussing and outbursts!" I finally realized that if a toy took more than inserting batteries, then I didn't buy it! If the puzzle didn't advertise "easy" or "ages 1 through 5", I didn't buy it. Basically, if it didn't come with a cheeseburger, fries and a coke, I didn't buy it!
