The $240 Christmas Tree From Hell
$20 in gas to drive to Nomansland to cut down our tree "it's a tradition"
$70 for the tree
$5 to tip the kid who tied the tree onto our car
$40 for lunch at Applebee's because we are in Nomansland and hungry
Future $$$ it will cost Jim for being mean to me because I told him to get off on the wrong exit (twice)
$20 for the leather gloves Jim left at the tree farm
$5 for the brand new glove of Andrew's he left as well
$70 the next morning to have the service station jump our car because Jim left the car door open and the light drained the battery (it was so cold too)
"it's a tradition"
$$$$$ to enlarge our living room and dining room because Jim has decided that this tree incident (did I tell you that it is the biggest tree in the history of mankind - Rockefeller Center would envy this tree) as we now refer to this experience has convinced him that our living space is too small - I shudder to think what next year's tree will cost us.
