This is an ornament I bought December 1992 during my senior year of high school. Our football team had won the state championship and we were very proud of them.
This morning Manga Dork was putting away the ornaments. I came through the house and saw her reaching for ornaments with her eyes on the tv. Next thing I know I see something fly off the tree and I hear a CRUNCH! I didn't even have to ask...
I did not yell...I just went to her room and counted to 10 (or maybe 100)and cried a few tears. I came out and I explained that I was very sad about the accident and that I had seen her watching tv instead of doing her work. Her paying attention to what she is doing has been a big problem....ummmm...can you say teenager! She was very upset that she had broke it and I think it made an impression on her...now hopefully she will learn from her mistake.
As for me...it just really STINKS! Boo Hoo!
