...it was an appliance. cry
But the box size and weight strongly suggested it was TI4.

I know it’s a petty thing to be disappointed over but I need some sympathy (and cement to harden up )


Has anyone else experienced similar events this Christmas?

You have my sympathy. To help resolve your disappointment, I suggest you send me TI4, so at least someone has it.

At Christmas dinner we played "the sticky forehead game"—which I'm sure has a more generally accepted name, though I will deny it—where you write something on a piece of paper that is then affixed to your neighbor's forehead without them reading it. Everyone can see what everyone else is, but to each individual their own identity remains a mystery. You then take turns asking a single question about yourself, with the winner being the first person to deduce what they are. The theme was "Christmas stuff" so we had snowflake and chestnuts and elf and so on. I was fruitcake, which everyone found uproariously funny.*

For my neighbor—a child—I chose disappointment. This caused a brief stir of shocked sensibilities—but your post has proven me far more right than mere holly.


*There was a brief attempt to make "fruitcake" my new nickname, which I countered by declaring that every time someone called me "fruitcake" I would respond by saying

Spoiler (click to reveal)
"drippy penis"

aloud. Smothered it like a pillow pressed to an invalid's face.

Being naughty is a win win if you're a blacksmith. You get more coal.
