  • I was an only child, and my mom and dad never wrapped the presents from Santa. I woke up early one Christmas morning and started going through things. My mom and dad wandered in and started watching and I was showing them everything Santa left for me, and when I thought I had gotten through everything, my mom pointed to a plain cardboard box and asked, “What’s that?”

    “I don’t know. Something of yours.”

    “No,” said mom. “It’s not mine. I guess Santa brought it.”

    I opened the box and started looking at it. “It’s some kind of machine I don’t know what it is.”

    Well, it turned out it was a rock polisher, which I really wanted because some friends of the family had one and made awesome jewelry. I’ll never forget my confusion and then my excitement when I realized what it was.

    That was before Star Wars. Now I get toys every Christmas. Last year, it was mini- and make-your-own lightsabers from Radio Shack, and this year it’s an R2 Wastebasket and the book “Sculpting the Galaxy.” My husband plays Santa and he never tries to hide the boxes.
