When I opened my birthday gifts last June, I was delighted:  every gift I opened was exactly what I wanted!!

Perhaps the secret to this is to ask for reasonable things, and in small numbers….and to find examples of stores and websites where they can be purchased, too.


My three guys couldn’t understand my exclamations of delight.  “What?” I asked.  “Why are you rolling your eyes?”

They said it was incomprehensible to them how I could act so surprised and happy when:
1.  I asked for 3 items.
2.  There were 3 packages.
3.  The packages were shaped like the 3 items I had asked for.

Perhaps IT’S A GUY THING  to not understand.  Who could ask for more??–to receive exactly what you wanted.
