I got a car vacuum solely because I bought my mother a new car. I can’t imagine any other reason why my sister would give me one. It’ll probably remain unopened until my nephew wants to earn pocket money cleaning the car.
Ahh the practical gifts. I still remember the year that underwear replaced toys. The biggest hint was my first Gillette razor and pamphlets for the Air Force, Army and Navy.
probable shoulda held onto a different present from someone else…
Practicality is under-rated, Wa Wa
Did that accidentally one year. I forgot one of my wife’s presents I had hidden and she found it about a month later. She enjoyed that and found it amusing.
Does Aunt Gladys think Monty is going bald? He still has a lot of hair. Must have been a regift. Maybe Aunt Gladys is losing her hair.
Aunt Gladys really knows how to cheer up a guy.
As long as the gift wasn’t something perishable.
My luck would’ve been a pair of socks or package of underwear. Or worse, a book entitled: “Losing Weight for Dummies.”
It might have been the ornament she thought you would like.
Does Aunt Gladys live in South Korea?
Well, it should have been a new Christmas tree ornament.
Actually, her thoughts were in the right place. She knows you don’t need Viagra…..
It was a tradition to get gifts from “the new year” in our family. Usually it was something like a personal box of chocolates that you didn’t have to share, an ornament or some sort of little toy, etc. Think there was some superstition attached to it at one time, but now it is just a way to ease out of the post holiday doldrums.
I did that a few years ago. Actually, I saved a gift until mid-January to try to really head off the winter blahs. Turned out it was a box of no longer fresh-baked cookies. I ate ‘em anyway, Stale cookies are still cookies.
Stitching in new hair works better.
Should have kept quiet and regifted it to the robot.
Well, cheers, Monty! Looks like Aunt Gladys has a sense of humor!
(And it’s good to see you taking down your tree on the right day, since today marks the official end of the Christmas season.)
