Secret Santa

Writing

 

Writing Prompt: You get to choose one gift — no price restrictions — for any person you want. The caveat? You have to give it anonymously. What gift would you give, and to whom?

I love Secret Santa, I think because at the end it all boils down to the look on the person’s face when the get the gift, then when they find out who gave it to them. As I mentioned in a previous post, gift giving is super stressful for me, so I like to ask ahead of time what you want, then I get it for you… yes I realize that is the total opposite of what I just said about the Secret Santa… listen people I am a multi-faceted and complex person who changed her mind when the wind blows…

My mom has always been a hard worker and she earns every penny she receives, so I would like to give her an little bonus this holiday season, a gift of cold hard cash of $50,000. I think she would appreciate that (hell who wouldn’t?), but I know my mother better than anyone else, she would see a check for that amount and think it was a joke, then she would think it was real and figure who gave it to her and why… she wouldn’t even cash it until she got some information about the person who gave it to her.

I love my mom, but sometimes giving her gifts is a pain, and giving things to her anonymously is damn near difficult, exposing myself and telling her that I was the one who gave her the money would open up a whole new can of beans, I can already hear her say, “Tyra how did you get all that money? Did you do something illegal?”

But at the end I think it would still be worth it…

Writing

 

Writing Prompt: Someone’s left you a voicemail message, but all you can make out are the last words: “I’m sorry. I should’ve told you months ago. Bye.” Who is it from, and what is this about?

Clearly this is a voicemail from a personal banker at my bank telling me that, I large deposit was made in my checking account and after months of making sure the funds were available (and it was legit) that 5 million dollars in now available.

(Don’t you love when  stuff is short and sweet?)

Until Next Time….
