I know you’re probably feeling really bad about the fact that your Christmas presents to me are late this year. It’s been a tough economy, so I’ve been VERY GENEROUS in forgiving you all for your tardiness.
For those of you who have been agonizing over what to get me and haven’t even BOUGHT ANYTHING YET, I would like to demonstrate my incredible generosity by offering you a suggestion about what you could get me.
I need this shower:
I won’t ruin the fun by suggesting where you might buy me this shower, because I know that you want to put at least SOME thought and effort into your gift for me.
I appreciate that, and look forward to receiving all of your presents any day now.
