I’ve been good enough to WRITE a list…..

My sweet, sweet Brother-in-law always wants a list of things he can get me for Christmas.  And he’s a very good gift giver ~ not just to me, but to everyone.  Of COURSE I tell him not to get me anything, but thank GAWD he doesn’t listen and gets me something anyway.

This year, I promised him I’d actually give him a real, live list. Things I would like to have and have thought about (that was the hard part).  So, without further ado (WTH is “ado”???), here is my list:


  1. A bottle of Tequila.  And not the cheap stuff that makes my Margarita taste like lighter fluid and Sprite mixed together.
  2. A bottle of Rum.  See # 1
  3. Iced Tea Maker.  The one I have has a cracked lid, stained pitcher and something I can’t quite identify on the outside….I’m sure it’s paint from SOMEthing.  I’ve had this Ice Tea Maker for 17 years and I’ve made at least 1 pitcher of tea every day for almost every day of those 17 years.  I really, really, really LOVE this tea maker.  That’s a lot of tea ~ dayum…can’t get anything to last any more, huh?
  4. Clean my truck.  I don’t mean anything fancy like a wax job, cleaning the wheels (NEVER understood that, but then again I don’t even wash my Truck) and have a white-glove treatment inside. Nope ~ I mean wash the outside, maybe even vacuum inside and get the french fries out from between the seats.
  5. A bottle of Tequila.
  6. A bottle of Rum.
  7. A bottle of Honey Whiskey. There are tons of new brands, and I’d be happy to taste test just about any of them….really ~ it’s a public service.
  8. Target.  Olive Garden.  Hobby Lobby.  Visa.   I am one of those people who LOVE Gift Certificates and I hoard them like chocolate on a Tuesday night.  I probably have 10 in my wallet with $18.42 available if I totaled them all together.  You never know when a store might have a dollar sale and I am READY when they do!!
  9. Did I mention Tequila?  And Rum?  Yeah?  Good.
  10. Dinner out.  Yep, just about anywhere.  And a Gift Certificate for any restaurant would work, too.  I’m not even picky, but I don’t do Chinese.
  11. Oh, and in case I forgot to mention it, a trip to the liquor store should solve all the gift list questions.
  12. And just for kicks, a guest starring role on NCIS would work pretty damn good, too.

See how easy that was….and really, this list could be laminated and given out in card form for the next 10 years to anyone that asks what I’d like for my birthday/anniversary/mother’s day/Christmas…

********************************************************************Thanks for reading my blog ~ if you want to leave a comment, I promise I’ll read it and respond because I LOVE comments.  And if you really love it, share it with your friends and have a margarita while you’re reading the blog out loud.  At the bar.  With other people near by.  It’s even FUNNIER then!  🙂 Cheers!


  1. Referencing #7.
    Not a whiskey fan typically, but tried a “cinnamon” whiskey recently – was pretty good! That stuff warms you from your gums to your gut!


    • Tina ~ I was NEVER a whiskey girl til I tried a Wild Turkey with a Splash of Pepsi at the bar one night. Fell in love and I’ve been trying lots of them ever since and I LOVE the cinnamon ones!! And yes, it definitely warms you right up!! Cheers !
