It was every Christmas Eve we were allowed to open one present and that one present always came from my sister who live miles away. It was each year she would make my sister Jane and I a present that represented her own unique expression. The hand-crafted present would also advise you who made her naughty and nice list for that very year.
One of us would get the pretty present and the other would be left wondering what did I say wrong… It was only apparent as both Jane and I ripped opened her present who made the annual list.
Jane opened her present to discover a beautiful floral house coat and matching slip-on.
I was excited! I tore open my present and thought, “What the hell is she telling me?”
A neon orange and black checkered house coat with slip-on stared at me!
I looked at it, I looked at the lovely floral gift my sister received, I looked at my parents, and then I looked at Jane.
It was with that we burst into laughter at my taxi cab lingerie!
I’m not sure what man I could beckon into bed with neon orange and black checkers! I don’t even think the most desperate of rockers would hop into bed with me!
Did she think I was still going through the eighties hair metal phase? I mean really even the girls in a Motley Crue video wouldn’t be caught dead in this thing!
I know once upon a time I teased my permed hair but this cabbie assemble no longer suited my long tresses and failed to flatter my faltering ass.
The only thing apparent this lingerie would do would entice a man into an epileptic seizure with all of its bright checker action!
Maybe that was the point she thought I was too young to get that action!
I will never know why I deserved to receive such a strange gift! But I do know every year at Christmas Eve I compare notes with Jane on our presents to see who came out on top on my oldest sister’s naughty and nice list.
I have been on the naughty list for many years and maybe this year she will think I am nice. We will have to wait and see on this Christmas Eve!
