The Christmas Tree Conundrum
One year, much to my mum's horror, I decided that we had to have a flocked tree - the newest rage. We couldn't afford one from the lot so she unfortunately thought the fight was over. How could she so underestimate me? When flocked trees first came out they actually sold a DIY can in the hardware store that you could spray on your tree and that's what we eventually did. It only took one year for me to realize what a stupid concept it was. The flocking made it hard to hang the ornaments and fell off like dandruff over the few weeks the trees was up. Dead needles and dry powdery flocking rained off as we tried to move the tree out of the house. However, I would never in a million years admit I was wrong. Fortunately at some point I grew up a bit and the hunt for a tree became a little easier.
