My birthday is swiftly approaching and the husband is once again asking me for a birthday list. For once I actually provided one for him, but he doesn’t seem too keen on any of my ideas.
1. Baby Goat
I love most baby animals, but baby goats hold a special place in my heart. I mean, really, who wouldn’t want a baby goat after watching this?
I keep telling Mr. Caffeinated Ginger that not only would we get a really cute pet if we had a baby goat, but we also would get free lawn mowing. So far I am not swaying him to the goat side.
2. Lazy River
I can’t think of anything more relaxing than floating around in this lazy river during the dog days of summer.
Add in a pool boy to routinely bring me cold drinks and I would be set.
3. Basketball Court
I love college basketball. My son plays high school basketball and much to my kids disbelief, I also was a basketball player when I was young. This basketball court is a perfect blend between my love for the sport and one of my favorite teams.
If that’s too much red and blue, I will also take a black and yellow court to represent my other favorite team–the Wichita State Shockers. I’m not picky.
4. Baby Lemur
If I can’t have a goat, I will take a lemur. Lemurs are just the coolest animals ever. I recently had a chance to feed lemurs at an animal park.
And I met this guy who was just hanging around:
What would be perfect is if I could have both a lemur and a baby goat, and then they could do this:
5. The Jetsons’ Kitchen
Cooking meals is not my favorite activity. I would like to say that it’s only because of the lack of time I have when I am working during the school year. However, during the summer I also tend to make excuses to not cook. “It’s too hot!” “No one’s ever home at the same time.” “Didn’t I just feed you guys yesterday?”
To make this chore much more enjoyable and less time-demanding, I would like a kitchen like on The Jetsons. Just push a button and boom! Dinner is served!
So far my husband is just rolling his eyes when I show him “The List.” I still have a few more days to work my magic.
What is the most unusual present you have asked for or received?
