Daily Post Topic: “Prized Possession”
My grandpa could fix anything and loved to do wood working in his garage. For my 9th birthday, he made me a lock box to keep diaries and special treasures in. He made it out of scrap wood from an old TV cabinet my parents discarded. I love my “treasure chest” it still keeps my diary(s) safe. I also have “trophies” from special dates in there, ticket stubs, letters, and crazy odds and ends that only mean something to me.
This cabinet fell on me when I was 6-years old. Because I thought the TV glass had broken and I would be electrocuted, I screamed bloody murder. My mom leaped out of bed and broke her big toe running into the family room to find her dumb kid pinned face-down underneath the TV cabinet.
The glass survived and I lived. I did get in trouble for climbing on the furniture and breaking mom’s toe. My back was bruised and sore for a week. So, when I learned that grandpa built my special box out of that evil cabinet, I was ecstatic.
I’m very big on justice, vengeance, and good old-fashioned revenge. I still smile when I look at it 😉
