This time I wasn't the impish one... BUT...I'm running with it! Hahaha! ;) I posted Part III of our 2007 Christmas tree and the next day I went back to check my blog and I read Angel's question. HUH??? I then went back to read paragraph 3. L-O-L!!! (To save you time, I posted the 2nd paragraph (so you can see what I WAS talking about and part of the 3rd paragraph so you can see what we were both talking about.) Her way is HILARIOUS and when she told me Fireguy was bent over laughing...well that is all the fuel I need to put this up. ;)

It usually turns out that the first tree we look at is the tree we bring home but of course we need to comparison shop. For some reason the big frasier trees seem to go earlier and we went later than usual because I had been sick. The first tree we saw was a good one although not quite as tall as I wanted but close.
I asked husband to pull it out and then dance it around. I don't mean dance through the tree lot with it but just twirl it around or walk while turning it so that I can see all sides. I hold it too so they can also look. I do like to ask for their opinions- husband, son and the lot guy's opinion. Of course my husband always likes the first tree or the second tree, etc. but I already explained what he'll bring home. I pretty much figure he'll say anything to just bring a tree home.
*** I confess that I will never quite see the Yuletide experience in the tree lot the same again... and I am probably gonna have to suppress some giggles. Ahem...I don't think I will be able to tell anyone at the tree lot to "pull it out and dance it around" ever again! And if I do make that mistake then I am pretty sure I am going to have to come up with an explanation for my falling to the ground in convulsive laughter! :)
