It was either my first or second Christmas when this happened, but I'm not exactly sure which. My parents had some ornaments that were small boxes wrapped up to look like presents. They have flashy metallic paper on the outside and at the core is a styrofoam block. In fact, we still have a couple of them and they are hung on the tree every year. But back then, apparently I decide that these ornaments looked particularily tasty and chewed on one--ended up chewing off a corner from what I gather. Well, every year since then, I'm always asked if I can remember what they taste like and if they were any good...
