Santa Surprise

I am a horrible gift shopper, so for Sharon's holiday gifts I try to start as early as possible. Hopefully, I'm mostly done by the end of November. Then, I wrap everything up so that if she goes into my supply closet for something she won't accidentally glimpse her presents.

Over the course of the next month, I forget the content of about half of these wrapped presents. Sometimes Sharon will say to me in December, "Well, if you didn't get me such-and-such, I'll buy it after Newyears. I can only smile sweetly and mysteriously, because even I don't know if I bought that or not.

When she opens her preents, it's as much for my benefit as for hers. "Yipee, I did get you that."
