I was 3 or 4 when I took a few presents and hid inside
my grandma's endtable (one of those hexagon ones with a door on one side - anyone know what I'm talking about??) and opened them.
They were Strawberry Shortcake figurines -a couple of inches tall, and they smelled like the food. I got SS, Lemon Meringue, and Blueberry Muffin.
I left the toys and the plastic packaging and the wrapping paper and all inside the endtable.
At some point before Christmas they were found. The torn paper and packaging was thrown away and the toys rewrapped.
I knew I was in trouble when I crawled into the endtable to play and they were gone.
On Christmas I had those three little funnily misshapen gifts to open and pretend to be surprised about. No one in my family EVER said anything to me about it (until as an adult we joked about it). But I felt SO guilty knowing I had been caught, and that they obviously knew, and I obviously knew they knew....
that I never did it again.
