Raisins 2007

Last Christmas I wanted to see how excited my 3-year-old would be to receive a 14-cent box of raisins.

They did fairly well compared to his more expensive presents. Those results can be found here. For a quick refresher, here's that actual audio from Christmas 2006. I gave his reaction a 6 out of 10 (also factoring in how happy he appeared to be.)

The tradition continued this year to see how a now 4-year-old would react to receiving a 14-cent box of raisins.

Wow, what a difference a year makes.

Here is the actual audio from my video camera of him opening his fiber-filled gift.

What did I get?



He gave me raisins!

(Actual foot-stomps of misery.)

(Handing box to my wife.) Put this back in your food!

I could listen to his shocked response of "RAISINS?!?" all day long. It is pure unadulterated disbelief. I might have to make it my ring tone.

I don't know if you can put a price tag on happiness, but 11 dried up grapes are no longer it -- at least for him. Hearing his little brain try to process why someone would think this is a good gift fills me, however, with great joy.
