It wasn’t the Manilow album she had been hoping for.

She’s unhappy with Kiss because she wanted Nine Inch Nails instead
MY GOD i would be so happy with that KISS album i would pee my pants. I’ve been looking and looking and can’t find one!!
I’m surprised nobody asked about the extension cord she’s holding under the Kiss album.
Kiss album, stick of Right Guard, extension cord — we really need to know the background story here.
We have virtually the same picture. About a million years ago my big brother received a copy of Surrealistic Pillow. The cover art was in deceptive contrast to the lyrics. My mom and dad heard “White Rabbit” and flipped their collective lid. I can still hear my mom: “THAT’S ONE OF THOSE DRUG SONGS!!!!!!!” GASP!!!!!!
I think the boy is holding something called a DataMan …it was like a calculator with math games on it, like a number guesser. I had one….it was ..fun. Anyone else remember that?
Dad’s got a bit of a Ron Swanson vibe going on.
I think the tiara says “Happy Hannukah” I wanna know why the one kid is so proud of his deodorant stick. Did he just start to stink?
My best friend told me her brother asked for a Wu-Tang Clan album one year and got Lionel Richie instead. I imagine his face might have looked something like this.
See, I would have been bouncing off the walls to have received that…. I am one of the rare young female Kiss fans. I’m pretty sure my father has that album tucked away with the other 600 Kiss Albums he has…
I’m right there with ya!! This was my first of many Kiss albums!!
loving grandma’s curlers
Are those curlers? Looks like some wierd flowery hat to me. Like one of those swimming caps from the 60s. Maybe she’s just off to the pool?
I once traded a Pink Floyd “Dark Side of the Moon” album for the KISS album she’s holding. One of the worst deals I ever made.
I love the – uh, the – well, the feathered-headress creature jumping out of the frame beside her is pretty awesome.
And what’s with all the figurines on the tv?
Epic! @mrswildthing, I expect that suit jacket he’s wearing in his present, that’s why he looks so happy! And grandma looks so proud, I bet the Kiss album was her idea.
“And a cheer goes up from all the little people on the TV!”
lol!! this made me almost cry from laughing!!
And why doesn’t the little one in the front have a present?
He’s wearing it. Hence the hunched shoulders.
It looks like he got a rockin’ plaid sportscoat.
Maybe he’s wearing it….or possibly whatever his present is is the cause for his strange posture.
Wow. What’s her tiara/hat thing say? Happy hobnob?
My best guess is “Happy New Year”, since it looks like “HAPPY HEWYC·R”. But your guess is much more awesome. I want a “Happy Hobnob” tiara!!
‘Hobnobs’ are a type of yummy cookie from England. Maybe she really likes them?
I expect the Dad to start singing “Daaaa-Bears, Da Bears Da Bears Da Bears……”
Awesome! A curling iron, a KISS album and deodorant! Plus Grandma even wore her curlers to the party! Epic!
Aww, the lovely look of teenage petulance! See? Some things DON’T change.
The real problem was it had been singed only by Peter Criss, I mean nobody wants and album signed by Peter Criss, not even Peter Criss.
OMG! I remember when I got that album, in fact I still have it. lol
More importantly why is the boy holding a deodorant stick?!!
Kodak, for the times of your life!
