I seriously wrote this in the thank you card that I sent to my parents today

Dear Parental Units,

Thank you for all the neat-o presents that you gave to me for Christmas/3 Kings Day*. I love them all and I still love you both, even though you didn't buy me the M3 BMW that I've been begging for since I was born.

Love,
Your Daughter

P.S. Don't forget that Valentine's Day is coming up! Can anyone say, "New Purse?"

Editor's Note: Yes, I am fully aware that I am spoiled. Bite me. I'm a widow.

*Footnote: Three Kings Day is a holiday celebrated in Mexico (and other Latin American countries) where kids receive presents from The Three Wise Men that gave Frank Incense, Gold, and Myrrh to Jesus. This day is also known as the Epiphany and is celebrated on January 6. Kids, in Mexico, do not receive their gifts on Christmas Day, as this day is viewed as more of a religious holiday, rather than Santa Claus Day. Instead, kids receive all of their gifts on 3 Kings Day and write all of their letters to the 3 Wise Men, rather than to Santa Claus. And yes, I receive (and give) gifts on both days. My parents wanted to embrace the American culture and celebrate Christmas as Americans do, but they wanted me to also embrace my Mexican culture, so we also celebrate the Epiphany. Double the gifts, double the spoilage. Neat, huh?

Dear MW,
Please send Frank incense so his apartment will smell nice enough that he can finally bang that chick at the bank that he's been seeing.
Sincerely,
Myrrhve.

PS - This is what part of the alphabet would look like if 'Q' and 'R' were removed.

PPS - Did you get my Christmas present? It came in the form of a spectral dog, meant to haunt your dreams with thoughts of me. If not, I'll re-send.

Hey, I like it. Being spoilt is fun. Not that I have EVER been... so I don't know anything about it, of course.

I totally agree that girlhood is something that should always be appreciated but never called out.

Also, in response to your comment, I'll have to say that HE'S one to talk ;).

Love the thank you note. I can't complain, my parents actually shopped from my wish list this year. If I'd have known they would, I would have put better stuff on it! :P

Dear Guy #3: You are weird. I love it.

RSG: Yes, I will keep the dream alive and continue to beg for the car. Because that's what grown-ups do, right? Beg their parents for new cars. I've got this whole "being an adult" thing down.

Pissy: I love that you said "teef." People are always laughing at me when i say "mouf."

Erl: When the hell did you start blogging again?!? I just spent a good quality 40 minutes of work time catching up. Work, schmork.

Kristine: I think my parents have all they can handle. Today I called them and asked them to buy me new tires for my car. My dad was all, "Um, don't you think that you can use your own money this time?" Sheesh. What an ungrateful parent. If it wasn't for me, he wouldn't get presents on Father's Day.

Eirene: I'm not spoiled. Or psycho. I just play a spoiled, psycho person on TV.

SWF: You don't even want to know what was on my Christmas list. I always put things like, "a new house" and "a 44" plasma HDTV." I still can't figure out why I never get what's on my list. ;-)
