I’ve been blessed me with many talents like being able to guess someone’s age (I could join the circus), natural rhythm (yeah, I think I can dance), and lastly giving the perfect gift (I could teach a class to Santa and his elves).
Each year I make a list of my family and friends’ names and take exhaustive time and careful consideration to choose the perfect gift for each and every one. And each year I’m flabbergasted by some of the crappy gifts I receive in return. I know you aren’t supposed to give with the expectation of receiving, but tell that to the camouflage Snuggie circa Christmas 2010 that’s collecting dust on the top shelf of my closet.
So this year I’ve decided to turn the tables on the habitual offenders.
I won’t punish everyone for the sins of a few. But the ones who run to Walgreens right before they come over and grab the first already gift-wrapped bottle of Jean Nate they can find, will have to pay the piper this year.
You know who you are. I’ve got some special gifts for you.
