LasVegasRN...that IS a riot! A man had to write that book, right? Please don't tell me a woman wrote it!
I use to collect Troll dolls...all of them...had them for several years until this four year old boy came to visit with his dad (his dad was a soldier friend of my hubbys). The little boy played with them while visiting, and when it was time to go home, he wouldn't give them back. His father told him it was time to go, so thank the nice lady for letting you play with the troll dolls. He thanked me, BUT clutched the bag of them under his arms tightly. When his father tried taking them away from him, he fell to the floor in a tantrum, kicking and screaming saying "No, Daddy, I want to keep them!" I said, "Dad, it's okay. I was looking for a nice home for them anyway, and since your son seems to love them, I feel really good about letting him have them." Of course, I lied...hadn't planned to give them away, but couldn't stand to break the little one's heart. So....away they went to a new home, and I've never collected anything since.
