All I Want for Christmas is an Ironing Board 13


I know, it sounds ridiculous, but it is true:

All I Want for Christmas is An Ironing Board

I know what you are thinking: An ironing board? Seriously? I hate ironing.

Yep.

I know. I gotcha.

You see, I hate ironing too. But, I started thinking about it the other day and realized something.

You know when you get a new car and all you want to do is sit in it and drive it around?

You see, it goes something like this:

 

You are sitting around the house and say to your sweetie, “Hey, I forgot we don’t have any butter. I am gonna run to the store!”

Off you go, You open the door to that car – smell that new car smell. Oh my.

There are absolutely no cheerios, old papers, or sippy cups in this baby! You don’t even have to sweep off the seat before you sit down.

You put on your seat belt carefully, and feel the sleek leather under your legs. You reach up to feel the smooth steering wheel. 

Oh!

Turn the key. Wow!

You hear the gentle roar of the motor.

And, off you go! 

Sure, you had three pounds of butter in the freezer, but as you turn down the road out of the neighborhood and roll down the windows, it doesn’t matter anymore. You could drive this car all day long!

Oh, baby!

 New Car

It’s like that fantastic new hair cut you got last month. You loved washing your hair. It was so fun to style. You kept going back to the bathroom to look in the mirror and were constantly amazed at how great you looked! Even when you were driving, you kept sneaking peeks at the new hairstyle. You couldn’t wait to show your friends. You felt renewed!! 

Hairstyle

 

So, are you catching on yet? Here is my reasoning:

This is how I want ironing to go at my house:

 

I see the board out of the corner of my eye as I wake up to get cereal on the table in the morning. Oh, my!

I secretly plug in the iron right before I jump in the shower, and set up the ironing board in my bedroom where I can see it in the bathroom mirror.

You see, I had to secretly plug in the iron because of what happened the night before. I refer to it as

The Intervention

“Honey, I have noticed you have been spending an inordinate amount of time ironing lately.”

“What are you talking about?”

“Well…were you actually ironing the girls’ barbie clothes yesterday?”

“Sweetheart, that is ridiculous! Don’t you think I have enough things to do around here? I don’t have time to do silly things like that.”

“Well, I am just concerned…”

“It’s not a problem, honey. I can stop anytime I want…”

Sometimes men just don’t understand. You see, Barbie has needs too.

 

I just can’t wait to use that ironing board. It is so sleek. It’s lines are so beautiful. It even smells new. You know, how new fabric smells. Oh!

I lay out all my clothes on the bed. Even the ones I ironed yesterday. 

Sometimes I even dream of sleeping on that new ironing board. You see, a new ironing board could make my life so much better – seriously. I can only dream!

 All I Want for Christmas is An Ironing Board

Yep, I know it sounds crazy, but it’s true. That ironing board could make all my dreams come true.

Right?

 

So, if this really works, I am thinking of getting my husband a brand spanking new garbage can for Christmas!

Garbage Can

Wahoo!!

Our Christmas is gonna be awesome this year!!

    HAHA!!! You are hilarious. I would love to see your husband’s face if you actually got him a garbage can. Mine might be happy with it as long as it was filled with Dr. Pepper or something,

    Hope you get that ironing board my friend! I have some clothes that need ironing so if you get bored once you are all done with yours…….

    Pahaha! You know Barbie has needs too? Ha. I love it. We got a really nice iron for our wedding and I still really like it. It’s not even that I really mind ironing. I’m just lazy and it takes too much time. My husband and I got a new computer this so we aren’t getting each other anything for Christmas this year. Loving this conversational post you have going on here, Elizabeth.

      I tried something different with this post, but I decided to post it anyway because it poured out of me. I had several positive responses so I may do a few more funny conversational posts in the future!

    I loved this! So clever. (Actually, I just want an ironing board that is lightweight, sturdy, and easy to put up and down, because I don’t have a lot of space to leave it up. I really need a short, but wide tabletop ironing board that I can use when I’m sewing in my tiny laundry room.) 🙂

    Sometimes you just need the more practical gift then, I think they would enjoy this kind of gifts.
    LOL, I’ve received the garbage bin present before and it filled with new gardening tools .. it was a good laugh but it’s what I needed at the time.
