Over time I’ve collected fairly a stash of presents that I’ve by no means used for one cause or one other. Somebody as soon as gave me a nostril hair trimmer within the form of an important, huge, yellow finger, for instance. So I perceive the motivation behind this thread. I simply do not agree with it.

Each time I’ve chosen and given a present to anybody, it has been executed with the intention of bettering that particular person’s day, even when it solely raises a quick smile. After I obtain a present I solely contemplate what’s within the giver’s coronary heart relatively than what’s within the parcel earlier than me.

And nice, huge, yellow fingers cannot be that simple to wrap.
