The tale of the red blanket - part I - "Grab it and Run"

This story is so famous in our family, that I cannot believe I have not told it yet.

Several years ago, I went on a trip to the Amazon region of Peru with some girlfriends to take photos and do some rafting.

While I was on my trip, I visited Machu Picchu and many other amazing places.

Along the way, I bought a red blank as a gift for my then-boyfriend-now-husband as a momento from the trip.

When I got home, he picked me up from the airport of course, and that weekend my sister came in to visit me.

I made her look through all 700 slides that I took on the trip, and she almost killed me for it.

At the end of the weekend she spotted the red blanket that I had bought back for my then-boyfriend-now-husband. He had forgotten to take it home to his apartment with him.

I think she saw this as lack of interest in the blanket, and she thought it was very pretty. She packed it up in her things and took it home with her.

That didn't go over too well with then-boyfriend-now-husband, as I will cover in my next post.

Hmm... Am I spoiling the next post by simply saying that I didn't like it one bit?...

No, there is more to this story than just that. Hee Hee!
