A Christmas Funny

Well we have begun the task of Christmas shopping for Benjamin. We are on a SUPER tight budget this year, so gifts are going to be pretty small, but I have managed to find a couple of used items I think he will really enjoy. And so, since I purchased used, I will not have to pry his toys out of their packaging. However, having done that before, I heard this song by Sara Groves on the radio and about died laughing.

You can download the song for free at:

In case you don't want to download it, here are the words:

Nothing makes me lose my cool like
Toy packaging
Ask the kids to leave the room for
Toy packaging
I have no choice the money's spent
I've worked for hours to make a dent
I guess it's anger management
Toy packaging

Nothing makes me lose my cool like
Toy packaging
Ask the kids please leave the room it's time for
Toy packaging
I'm drawing up a battle plan to extricate this robot man
My self-esteem is in the can
Toy packaging

In the old days you could hold a box and shake it
And hear the pieces rattling around
My eyes tear up with these grommets, tape and twisty ties
Remembering their beautiful sound

Nothing makes me lose my cool like toy packaging
Kids you need to leave the room, mom's opening toy packaging
I'm sorry you have to see this sight
You must be brave, no please don't cry
I promise it will be alright
I hope to have it by tonight
Nevermind this dynamite
Toy packaging
