this link to inspire me on what not to get. I had to laugh!!! But seriously, are you kidding me? A dual bag vacuum cleaner??? I would never make that mistake.
Well, actually I did make that mistake one Christmas. She assured me that she didn't want anything for Christmas, so I got her some stackables for the kitchen. You know those little plastic things that are used to store potatoes, onions, and other items. That was a big mistake. Her hurt look was more than I could bear. I hadn't learned at the time that when she says that she doesn't want "anything" it really means I do want "something" and it had better be nice. Luckily, I didn't get sent to the Dog House.
So now I get her something appropriate that she likes. And it's usually a big hit.
But thanks Steve for the painful reminder. I'll let you know how this year's gift went over.
