For Christmas my parents gave each of my boys cookie dough or brownie mixes. So it didn't seem out of the ordinary that they gave me a package of sugar free, fat free Jello pudding. I figured they were being thoughtful, and wanting to encourage my recent weight loss, gave me a healthy yet tasty alternative to some of the snacks they gave my kids.
The pudding didn't get put away in the cupboard (where it might have remained for a long, long time until I remembered it), but kind of floated around until after 3 days of begging (and 5 days of sitting on my dresser) Mark finally convinced me to make it. I even had to go to the store to buy milk. Imagine my surprise when after getting out a pan and jug of milk, I opened the pudding -not stopping to wonder why it had been taped shut- to find not pudding, but a miniature flashlight.
I remembered then that one of the things I had specifically asked for (not on my official Christmas list) was a flashlight that would attach to my hand or arm so I would have 2 hands free when I'm walking my dogs in the dark and have to pick up after them (yes, I actually do pick up after them).
This flashlight is very bright despite it's size and attaches to my finger with velcro so it points wherever I do. Very nifty. I think it's very cool, (thanks Mom and Dad), but Mark was disappointed that he didn't get pudding. -Della
