the gift

This needs a lot of set-up. And family members should just stop reading now....

My husband has hinted at going on a cruise for years but only because the buffet feeding frenzy really sounds like such a great way to spend a week. He hates boats and sailing and fishing. I hate sand and water deeper than my bathtub. I've discouraged this idea of his for years. Can't think of a darn thing he wants these days. Maybe he still wants to go on a cruise. So I made a fake lottery ticket and bought a box of junk from the dollar store including a mermaid, a crab, a mouse pad with tropical fish on it, palm trees, pirates and little boats and a puzzle of a parrot head. Then I added a page with a ship from a dot-to-dot book entitled Can You Connect the Dots? I think he'll get the idea.
But if he still doesn't get it, I'll have him scratch off the spots on the lottery ticket and see that he's won a 7-day cruise to Cozumel.
If you want to do this yourself, just print out your picture and the prizes (be sure you have three that match!), then put tape over the prize spots and apply dark acrylic paint over the words. It really will scratch off just like the real thing!
