the ghost of presents past

Evan: "Um, Daddy, remember that toy airport set that you bought me a few years ago, that had a little Air Force One and a Secret Service SUV and stuff?"

Eric: "Yeah."

Evan: "That was kind of a lame toy."

Eric: "Oh."

Evan (hugging me): "I don't mean to hurt your feelings, though."

Eric: "Hmm. Then why did you tell me that?"

Evan: "It's sort of been haunting me."

You shall be visited by THREE SPIRITS of lame-ass toys you are embarrassed you used to play with a lot.
