Monday Mayhem - What Would You Do If....

Welcome to Monday Mayhem
Every week is something different.
Have fun!

Today's meme- What would you do if.......
Simply copy and paste this into your blog post and answer each prompt with an image, words or whatever makes you happy.

What if during holiday gift giving someone gave you....

A fruit cake?
Priester's Fruit Cake Tin 3 lbs. 6 oz.

Donate it. The fact is...I do not like fruit cake, and I don't know anyone who likes fruit cake. I have matured quite a bit, and with that I have discovered that I enjoy foods that I once did cauliflower, broccoli, summer squash, peas, but I have yet to enjoy fruit cake. Hopefully most anyone I know would not purchase it, but if they did, it would have to be donated to someone who might enjoy it. Any one want to call dibs?

An ugly sweater?

This happened to me. One Christmas when I was 19, I received a light turquoise sweater vest with a panda on it. The panda had GLASS EYES! I kid you not! It was singularly the most creepy and unattractive sweater vest I have ever owned. I haven't owned many sweater vests. In fact...I don't think I owned any other than that one. Man was it gross! OOOH...I forgot to add....that it just sat in my drawer. I had no idea what to do with it.


When you get a gift like this, all you can do is simply ask if the person thinks you smell. Hopefully they are just bad gift purchasers, but you might as well jump in with both feet and ask the tough questions. Am I wrong here?

A check for $5

The front side of a substitute check.

Cash it. What else would I do? I never scoff at money. Of course if the check is signed by this Jane Doe broad, I'd probably just toss it.

Mr. T

Who wouldn't be excited about this gift? With the price of gold, I would CLEAN UP! I would be very, very appreciative. :)

A lump of coal

I would display this proudly. It isn't every year that you qualify for a lump of coal! still beats the sweater vest AND the fruit cake.

Miley DVD

The World According to Miley Cyrus: DVD Cover offense...lovely girl, but I'd regift. There are plenty of teenagers I could give it to.

So, what is the worst gift you have ever received?

Sit down...this could take a while. I have several. I was given a full spectrum light bulb, root beer making kit, make your own journal kit (yes...not a journal, but a craft that will eventually be a journal if you don't mind bookbinding), a hand held shark vac, and five inch heeled thigh high black patent leather books (I am NOT kidding). OOOPS...EDIT See. That is how much I hated them. Well, I didn't hate them exactly. But, let's face it...I wasn't the one who was supposed to benefit from them. ;)

Thanks for joining us.
Do you have an idea for a Monday Mayhem meme?

I'd probably ask the tough questions too. Wonderful answers.

You are so funny!

I don't know what the worst gift I've ever gotten was but I've had some 'waste of money' gifts. Seriously I think people buy something for themselves and then regift to me or something.

Have a Blessed Christmas.

patent leather BOOKS? Ok, call me nuts but actually I like fruit cake. That sweater vest sounds like an 8 year old would probably love it but not a 19 yr old. Hope you get some better stuff this year.

Have a great week!
