somebody's getting COAL

princess woke up and i went to put in a christmas movie for her. our DVD player died when we moved so we got a new DVD/VCR combo - we still have a lot of VHS tapes, kid movies mostly, and you can't even BUY a VCR anymore, just the combo, or a DVD player.

i went to put in Santa Clause, which is a VHS. it spit back out. tried 3 times, same result. hm. is it the tape? went to put in a different tape, tried 3 times, just spit back out. eek! is it my player? have we even USED the VCR part since we bought it? what if it doesn't work - i probably can't even get them to fix it after 3 months. ARGH!

let me peek inside and see if i can guess what the problem is. yeah, it's kinda like opening the hood of your car and peeking inside, but hey, might as well try, right?

there were THREE dvd's in the VCR compartment. i'm surprised the tapes went in at all. had to contort my arm to get my fingers in and pry them out (actually had to push them in farther to get them out). tried santa clause again. it's playing now.

three guesses who did this and the first two don't count? i'm not even asking. i know who it was. and she is getting COAL in her stocking!

Heehee! Could be worse. I've heard tales of toddlers inserting peanut butter sandwiches. :D

LOL! I definitely didn't see that coming, but I should have. What a little troublemaker!
