I had an ace Christmas. I spent it at my girlfriends parents house in San Francisco.
Even though I was so far away from home Father Christmas still managed to find me.
He brought me The Audacity Of Hope by Barrack Obama and a Tea Cosy.
When I unwrapped the Tea Cosy at first I thought it was a wooly novelty hat.I think I even said thank you for the Hat.
Being very British and therefore incredibly polite, even though I would have looked ridiculous in it.I had every intention of wearing the "hat" all day and acting as if I thought I looked great in it.
Then as I started to take it out of the wrapping I noticed that it had a hole in one side. Instead of noticing the tea cup though and realising what it was I thought to myself
"Is this a balaclava? are they taking the piss?"
Once I found the other hole and eventually worked out what I was holding. I gave a very loud sigh of relief.
I was very grateful for a tea cosy as I drink a lot of tea. As the relief from not having to wear it in public streamed across my face though. I must have looked insane with gratitude.
Dyans Parents must now think that I really really like tea cosys
