It's A Slinky

I was around 5 and my cousin Joe was 4 when we got our first slinkies on Christmas Day at My Grand Mothers house, we would take them upstairs and race them down a big stairwell and mine would always would finish first.

We had one more race and instead of Joe's slinky going down the steps he had pushed me down them instead, I hit every freakin' one of those steps!

I think Joe was a poor sport on losing but I got even, when he was a sleep I took his slinky and tied him up to the bed with it.

Needless to say I got my ass whooped again,come to think of it I had alot of ass whoopings on Christmas!

And remember...........

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

And as always thanks for listening!

We always got slinkies at Christmas too-although we never threw anyone down the steps over it. LOL
I still buy them at Christmas for my kids now. It is good some things never change ...and the day after Christmas we are still trying to untangle those dang things. Only difference is now they are PLASTIC!!

I wish I saved my slinkie from years ago. I don't like the new ones of today.

Hugs, Rose
