My sister-in-law told me this story:
One of her sons really liked a certain pair of socks with palm trees on them, so she got them for him for Christmas. Little did she know, until the package was removed and the socks were unfolded, that they weren’t adorned with palm trees at all.
It was an older son who pointed out, “Uh, Mom. That’s pot.”
In her defense, the tops of the plants do bear some resemblance.
Perhaps the use of marijuana makes you feel like you’re in the second picture. I wouldn’t know.
Have any of you ever made a disastrous purchase for a child? Did you ever buy something that was quite different from what you were expecting? If so, do tell!
