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.
