The gift from my brother was amazing. What could it be?

A knock on the door at 12:30 in the morning. I had just nodded off to sleep (I had things to do this morning so I decided I should be well rested at least one night out of the year), and then I wake up to the dogs barking. So I go downstairs and answer the door to find the father of my brother's ex-girlfriend. He shows me a rock with some threatening messages on it, and claim that they've been getting death threats on their answering machine since the two broke up. People apparently have also seen my brother in the area. I refer him to speak to my mother while I brew myself a cup of tea.

When that's all said and done, I'd finally gotten back to sleep again when THERE'S ANOTHER KNOCK. This time, it's the police. They'd like to talk to my mother and my brother. I don't know what happened because I sat inside sipping on more tea, when my brother comes back inside the house 30 minutes later and storms up the stairs. My mother comes inside yelling up at him "Don't talk to her, don't go near her!" I just look at her, sigh, and come back upstairs to try to get to sleep again.

Thank you, my dear brother for a wonderful Christmas morning.

Normal people ask for movies, music, and games for Christmas, but I don't need those anymore. I can download them all for free, so there are really very few things to ask for. I was thinking about getting a Wii game, but last week I soft-modded my wii, so now I can just download games for that too.

>> No.1820066

Gifts are mostly just a bother. First you are asked to make a list of stuff you want, even though there isn't really much you have a desire for, because you're very much isolated from consumerism. Then you're expected to find gifts for your whole family, and you have to choose between spending ages thinking up something, or disappoint yourself by not being able to surprise them because you picked something from their list. And then you get the presents, and you have to worry about appearing happy every time you open them, even if you're feeling kinda meh. And then you have to worry about using them enough to justify their purchase. I, for instance, have to learn how to play the harmonica, even though I already practice with two other instruments daily, just so I don't feel bad about getting it.
