Married with Christmas

My Christmas presents for my husband never work out. Last year I got him a piece of art the artist couldn't finish, a book he didn't want to read, and pajamas that chaffed his nipples.

This year, whenever I ask him what he wants he tells me "blank CDs" or "socks". Wow, exciting!

And while I'm handing him blank CDs he'll be showering me with original paintings and luxury trips.

My biggest hits for him at Christmas have been a keychain flash drive and a nose hair clipper.

It scares me to even think about topping those.

this actually makes me feel much better. during dan's first xmas with us (when i had no idea what he liked) so i gave him a bag of "things everyone can use," i was so embarrassed. I even felt a little dishonest disguising up in ribbon things that were actually quite mundane underneath.
turns out, i hit the nail right on the head.
