Don’t tell me your weaknesses

because during the holiday season

I will get even.

My daughter once said

those big plastic dolls

that open their eyes

give me the creeps.

I can’t seem to feel ease

around dolls that have such big eyes looking at me.

Last Christmas I gave her a big surprise.

I wrapped a prank gift

that was her kryptonite

She finally opened it and screamed

because she couldn’t believe her eyes.

The doll had long lashes and big eyes.

We all couldn’t stop laughing.

I finally gave her the real gift

and she became very happy.
