My Christmas Surprise...
Brought to you by my brother, the Canon fairy.
Seriously, the best brother ever! I knew he wouldn't be spending the same amount of money on Christmas this year because he is taking a leave of absence from work to attend school.
So, when he asked me what I wanted to Christmas I told him he could get me some Heidi Swapp foam stamps.
Christmas eve he came out with a box and threw it on my lap. The tag said "Now you have to be nice to me all year". Here I am totally confused. I shake the box, and it sounds like a ball. I open it up. Inside there is another box. At this point I'm laughing and saying that there is probably box inside of box and in the end I'll find a walnut or something.
I'm laughing along, thinking this is just a gag gift when I tear open the wrapping paper and see the Canon logo. I just about pooped my pants! I knew exactly what it was. Tears came to my eyes and I almost started to cry. I ripped off the paper and pulled out a Canon 75-300mm lense.
Totally blew me away.
I was trying to decide on which lense to get for Xmas and settled on the 50mm. I figured I would save up my birthday money to buy the 75-300.
I still can't believe that he went over and above on a Christmas gift for little old me.
And he is right, now I have to be super nice to him for ever and ever. Plus, he still bought me those Heidi Swapp stamps.
What a bro. Thanks Corey!
