    Mine was a TRS-80 Color Computer 2

    It was the last present under the tree when I was 10 years old. I thought it was going to be a pair of sweat pants.

    My father bought me a 50cc Honda when I was 8. My mother almost killed him for it. About 2 weeks after Xmas, I was riding it in the yard and I picked up a little speed even though my father told me to slow down, tried changing gears and the bike kicked out from under me, threw me to the ground and went right thru our garage door. Needless to say, my ass was sore for 2 weeks. One week from the fall and one from the spanking, but it was still a kick ass present.

    This is easy.

    This one year, I'm guessing I was about 7 or 8, I got my first radio. It had a cassette player. Along with it I got a Beatles tape and a Beatles poster. That was the best Christmas evah!
