Well ain't that the truth! Last year I hit up some stores to rope in bargains on some post-Christmas sales-- and I walked away with a new Christmas tree for a whopping $25! I was stoked!
Well-- I pulled it out this year and was amazed at how the manufacturers could possibly fit a 7' tree into such a small box! Well, I was surprised-- until the "tree" was assembled.
Here's what the sorry-excuse-for-a-tree looked like:
And down she went. She now sits on the curb, waiting for the next truck of junk collectors to scoop her up. Good riddance.
I'm much happier with the new tree. It doesn't look nearly as putrid as the last one.
And little Jack could care less!
