Apples and A Question

Crunchy or chewy?

Cinnamon or no cinnamon?

How do you like your dried apples?

I think I prefer them a little chewy with cinnamon.

We've had apples drying on our counter for weeks ... weeks I tell you, and by the time we eat all of the dried apples in our pantry, I'm never going to want to look at another apple!

Okay... I'm taking a poll. I'm curious as to what you would do in a situation.

Let's say that someone you were dating gave you a gun for Valentines Day.

Let's say that a few months later things ended with the said someone.

And let's say that the way things ended was bad...really...and that it took you a while to recover.

Would you keep the gun or give it back?

I say shoot him. That way you end up with the best of both worlds. You never have to worry about him again and you get to keep the gun without any guilt. Perfect.

Keep it or sell it. Don't give it back. It's not his.

I was going to say that but I was afraid that coming from me it would appear a bit sexist.

what a romantic gift. He obviously doesn't need it- keep it or sell it

All I need to know about ending relationships I can find in a Sandra Bullock movie (or the "we're going in different directions" speech in Emperor's New Groove). For this situation, I'm going to go with Runaway Bride. She kept ALL of those rings.

Gifts are gifts. Keep it.

Keep it it was a gift after all. Gift= turning over ownership to the receiving party. If you still feel guilty about keeping it sell it or offer it for an raffle for your favorite charity. That way some good comes from a bad situation.

I like my apples chewy and cinnamon sprinkled.

As for the gun, it was a gift. I suppose if it was a "family" type thing where his Dad had given it to him or something like that I might return it, but other than that, no. Keep it.

I propose you sell the gun and use the funds towards a trip to Africa!

GIVE IT BACK! What an excellent way to say "I'm sooooo over you!". I might even add a "take this gun and shove it...".

Gratification like that you can't put a price tag on.

(but if you don't give it back then at least sell it & follow Kimber's excellent advice. Africa or bust!)

You give it back!!! No debate. No question. No hesitation. You give it back!!! I don't have strong feelings on this. ;-)

Did I say shoot him? Silly me. I meant stalk him. With. Your. Gun. That could be fun. Or penny tap him. With your gun. That could cost some serious Jones Paint & Glass money.

Why don't you sent him a box of bullets. That way he knows your thinking about the gun, but not really going to give it back. But that would be salt in the wound. Did you know there is a three month wait for amunition these days. Can't get enough for the cement bunker. Everybody's stocking up for the end of the world. Or at least the crash of the dollar.

What you really need to do with that gun is use it to choose the colors for you living room. A little cool silver with maybe a pistol handle black trim. Then mount that six shooter on the wall right under the home sweet home wall hanging you made in relief society. So classy. Very in style. And what a conversation piece?

They match colors in the paint deparment at Lowe's. They're very good. All they need is the barrel and maybe the hammer and pin and you're good to go.

Does anyone else needs some advice about their guns? Its free.

Don't you dare give that gun back!!! I will buy it from you if I must, but don't give it back! He doesn't deserve it or you for that matter.

Tia said...

I think you did the right thing. Although, Mr. Woolley's suggestion has some merit as well... :)

Give it to me!

I've never had dried apples.

Gun??? For valentines? Awww, how romantic, I could cry!

I'd have used it, on him, the very day he gave it to me. No doubt.
