I love the holidays. I insist the tree go up the weekend after Thanksgiving. I always promise myself that I’m going to get everything done ahead of time so that I can sit back and enjoy the holidays.
It never happens. There are always deadlines and for the last nine years it has never failed that I get edits the week before Christmas. It’s a good problem to have, so I don’t complain much. Plus, it gives me an excuse to order people around. Have I mentioned I hate cleaning house and doing laundry? When my boys ask what I want for Christmas, that’s what I always say.
And I figured out how to get really nice presents from my husband.
He says, “What do you want for Christmas.”
I say, “A Mercedes SUV.” His eyes get really, really big. “Is there anything else, maybe a little smaller.”
“I guess a Kate Spade bag would be okay. There are a couple I really like.”
“Good, good.” Then he walks out holding on to his wallet rather tightly.
A few days later, one of the boys, will come and say, “What do you really want for Christmas? You don’t need another purse. Dad said you wanted a purse. You should get an iPad.”
That’s something I hadn’t thought about, and then on Christmas morning I get an iPad. One year my oldest was worried his dad got the wrong present, so he bought me a Wii. I love that thing. And I love my boys who know me so well.
Oh, I know it’s mercenary, but anyone who has been married for a 100 years like I have, gets it. If I don’t say something, I’ll end up with a blender or a taco maker. One year it was a Tupperware pitcher. I have nothing against Tupperware, but he didn’t get out of the dog house for months on that one. Sure, it should be about peace on earth and goodwill toward men.
But I’m not going to lie, I love me some presents.
So I want to hear about the craziest gift you’ve ever received. Tell me, I really want to know.
