Four months ago:
Maddie: What are you doing with our Christmas tree?
Me: We are getting rid of it. I don't want a rinky-dink Christmas tree in our new house. We'll get a new one when the time comes.
Maddie: But I love this tree. I wanna keep it forever and ever.
Me: Look, I'll buy you a brand new Christmas tree of your very own if you let me keep packing and getting rid of junk. Go do something.
Two weeks ago:
Me: Are you sure this is the one?
Maddie: Oh yes, it's perfect.
I now give you the most bling blingingest tree in all creation.
P.S. The ahem real Christmas tree is in the office.
