A funny story from when my daughter Cait was younger. My friend Lori and I lived in apartments in the small town we went to school in and for me, I grew up in. I lived on the second floor and she lived on the bottom floor and naturally our patios were directly above/below each other. Caitlin and Shaw, Lori's son, were about 3 or 4 so Lori and I decided we wanted to decorate and merge her patio with my balcony and have one large display between the two for the kids (really, it was for the kids ****wink wink****). We really got into it and when dark came we plugged everything in and it was just BEAUTIFUL!!!! We were so proud of ourselves. We had a small ice storm a few days later and had been out sliding around in our boots having a blast. Well, clumsy me slipped and fell and conked my head on the concrete. I went upstairs to my apt and checked to make sure I wasn't bleeding etc. Well obviously I conked out because Lori and a couple others had tried calling me to make sure I was ok and I didn't answer. Well she decided because I had passed out she was calling paramedics to make sure I was ok - awesome friend who truly cared.
Stay with me, I promise the ending will relate to the decorations lol.
Anywho, I was so paranoid and didn't want them coming with sirens so I had to make them promise to just come but no lights or sirens. If you grew up in a small town you know paramedics are usually firefighters too etc. Well they came and checked me out and told them to just keep an eye on me. Before they left they made sure to let us know, and I am not exaggerating here, that we were "a fire hazard" with all the lights we had going!!!! We had to promise to only have them on if one of us were home and when we went to bed to turn them off otherwise we were gonna have to tone it down a few notches LOL!!!
Now you are probably wondering what in the world that story has to do with the post title of "Tangled" right??? Well, this darling Edwin stamp I got recently totally brought back the memories of Lori and I hanging lights and getting tangled up and having to unwrap ourselves, etc which led to us being called a fire hazard!!! See, I promised it would all tie in together!!!
