Those of you who know me, know that I shop all year for Christmas. I keep a list and tuck things away, spreading that gift-giving joy throughout the year.
But, of course, it ramps up at this time of year as kids share their wish lists and more goodies entice us. Occasionally I’ll share an idea with St. Budget—I mean St. Bob—whose response is usually, “How much is that going to cost?”
Which casts a Grinchlike gloom over the merriment of the season, and I scowl, trying to figure out how to justify the sudden expense.
So I was NOT AT ALL AMUSED when St. Bob and I went out for a Chinese meal recently, and he opened this fortune:
right before I opened mine, which said:
“Wow!” Bob said. “Looks like my fortune came true immediately!” He said it was the best Chinese meal he’s ever had.
I am still pouting, but I might pull out of it if you purchase one of my books or watch one of my YouTube Mom videos here.
