Getting A Gift That Benefits Everyone... Except You

Some Fathers buy their daughters gifts like flowers, chocolate, gift cards
or ponies ...but my Dad is much more "thoughtfully creative" with his gifts...

Like when he surprised me yesterday, literally frisbee-tossing this 
at me and shouting, "Kelsey! I bought this for you, here catch!"

Considering the fact that my mom is currently in Vancouver... it's obvious my 
Dad is hoping to "inspire" me to forsee the domestic duties of the household

"Handles for easy transport"... isn't that generous lol

Wow... handles 

At least it was fun to open :)

 So what do you think, should I gather up some dirty clothes and test this out?

I could do that, yes, or I could choose a better option... 

Screw laundry! I think this hamper works 
much better as an end table for the living room!

My TY Angel Bear thinks so too :)

"I guess your gift came in handy after all dad!"

 Before I go, I have some "dirty laundry" I feel I need to air out first ...

This is why I think I will let my dad clean his own laundry!

 I ain't touching no dirty underwear ;)

But I will however thank him for thinking of me by sewing up the tear in his 
briefs... just as long as he doesn't tell me how he got the rip in the first place!
