The best thing in the U-Haul store

So after the mess-up with the U-Haul in Montréal, U-Haul generously sent me a gift certificate for the trouble they caused me, Pickles and my parents. I went on the U-Haul store on Sunday night to see just what exactly I can get there.

There were boxes and there was packing tape. There were packing chips and even special little envelopes, but I don’t think that anything could ever top the truck antlers.

Pickles is reluctant to let me get them, even though we have a gift certificate for it. “We’re trying to draw less attention to our car!”

I think they’re hilarious. My little sister says that we should buy them, give one of them to my older sister and my brother-in-law, and keep the other for ourselves. That way, we can affix the one to the front of the van, and rather than being a deer, we can be a unicorn. I would seriously be okay with that.

    This needs to happen.

    Nice wordpress theme BTW. Did you make it yourself?

    I quite agree about that. This is one of those life-changing, opportunities that never come again.

    Oh, and this theme is called “modularity lite” but I modified it a bit because I didn’t like some of the things it did.

    Do it! Or a great parental Christmas present.

  4. […] Pickles says that I should get a “pimp coat.” I want to go and see if there’s anything with an animal’s face or head on it. I’ve looked at their site, and there are some really disturbing things, and some things that I just couldn’t imagine myself wearing. That said, I haven’t been this excited since I discovered this in the U-Haul store. […]
