Christmas may be over, but ...



We are still playing with our toys! Yes, I am still fighting with plastic shell cases and impossible twisty ties and heavy duty cardboard that has been stapled and taped and glued in place, all cleverly designed torture devices for parents.


And the batteries. Don't get me started on those impossibly tiny screws they use to keep the battery case closed at all costs, all in the name of safety. I mean really, I got a gift that uses batteries, and all I had to do was flip off the battery cover, insert the batteries (all 6 of them) and then snap it back in place. But for all the kids' toys, there are a number of teeny tiny screws, and if you're successful in getting those off (I finally had to resort to the eyeglass repair kit), then you must manuever it carefully, so as to not snap off any appendages that fit the cover snugly into place so it can't be removed, EVER. And the batteries last for a total of two hours playing time, so then you get to do it all over again.


Yeah, Christmas is so much fun.


Ah, but the pictures! The joy, the rapture ...
