My mom sent me one of the oddest gifts I’ve ever recieved as a ridiculously early birthday gift.
She sent me an APPLAUSE sign, complete with remote control that causes it to either light up, flash, turn off, or make a “crowd screaming” noise.
Have you ever opened a gift, and suddenly had a realization about your family? My realization upon opening this one was: Insanity is clearly genetic.
There wasn’t really an appropriate place for it at my apartment, so I brought it into work. People were highly amused, especially because we don’t have a real applause sign at the show.
It now proudly decorates the P.A. office, perching rather precariously atop a light fixture where it can easily reach an outlet.
And there it shall remain until I claw my way into a position where I have my own office.
