What’s in Dad’s care package

Submitted by on Sunday, 29 August 2010 No Comment
This week's theme: Bananas and Balboa.

They're seemingly unrelated, but Dad loves both and I lucked out on both counts.

Trapped with the guys in one of the unrelenting downpours that marked our trip back east, we decided to browse the dollar stores for DVDs. We hit the mother lode, including the original "Rocky." It's one of Dad's favorite movies - and by favorite, I mean it falls in the category of "would watch it 24-7 if there were an all-Rocky cable channel."

We also found what I thought was a megapack of banana chips at another store and sent them as well. I found out it wasn't a mega enough pack when a friend raided Dad's desk in the dead of night and finished them off. Note to self: Put banana chips on the shopping list.

The rest of the package consisted of assorted cans of tuna plus a can opener, because I'm tired of overpaying for tiny individual servings. Honestly, I can't believe it took me that long to send a can opener.

Oh, and there was the Recommended Dad Allowance of Paydays, and I need to increase the RDA because other friends have developed a fondness for them as well. Plus they're one of the few candy bars you can ship when a package is traveling between two places that are routinely 10 degrees hotter than hell.
