I saw that AVA Gallery's Mudroom has this as their theme for their live storytelling next week 12/15 at 6:30pm. So I got to thinking....should I tell them about when my grandmother caused a car accident on St. Patty's Day when I was a kid? She hadn't even been drinking. No injuries. Nope. Too tame.
Or when our Golden Retriever ate all the Spritz cookies when I was a kid? (A true tragedy for a German family....) Nope. Too common.
Or perhaps when our cat decided to gnaw on the thawing Thanksgiving turkey...Nope. Too gross.
Or the trip to DHMC for our grandson on the 4th of July to lance the blood blister under his big toenail? Nope...but wait. Nah...our subsequent trip to cool off in the CT River (when I saved him from drowning (!) That has possibilities but the only thing lost was my shoe....
Or Halloween...when we bought the original fixer upper, gutted it and moved in...Nope. Save that one for another day...
Or that fateful Christmas in 1968....getting closer. Almost there.
Guess I'll have to wait until next week to tell the rest.
