What is the most memorable gift you have ever been given? I think that most presents get kind of forgotten about at some point, even the very best ones. This got me thinking about what gift I could receive which I would never ever forget about.
It would certainly take a while to forget about a present of Mario Lemieux rookie cards. I say this because I have absolutely no idea who the bold Mario is or what rookie cards are. Ok, so I just had a look and Monsieur Lemieux appears to have been a popular proponent of the fast paced sport known as ice hockey. Rookie cards seem to be the first cards where a sportsperson appears on a collectable card. Hey, if its valuable and collectable then I’ll have one after all.
What about an araucana, or a dozen or a kilo or pint of them or however it is they are sold? Well, it turns out that it is a kind of Chilean chicken. Who would have guessed it? The only time I was ever in Chile I had a very nice chicken empanada. At least I think it was chicken. Anyway, I enjoyed it and would really prefer some arucana empandas to the actual chickens if you don’t mind, or any kind of empanada really.
Do I want or need some Milgard doors? I must confess that I have never been given a door as a gift and it would certainly make for a novel one. A couple of my doors need painting so you could just paint them instead if you want to.
I know that it’s not good form to name your own gift but I saw some Ranger boats for sale and just loved the idea of them. Is this the kind of boats forest rangers use? Hang on though. Do forest rangers even use boats? I have a funny feeling that I could be in for a bit of disappointment here.
