A Christmas dialogue, starring me and my dad:
Dad: A couple of Wal-Mart gift cards.
Me: Wal-Mart gift cards? Really?
Dad: Everyone shops at Wal-Mart, son.
Me: Yeah, Dad, but it’s a Christmas gift. Wouldn’t a gift card from a slightly classier store be more appropriate?
Dad: Well, I considered getting them each a Macy’s gift card, but what can they buy there with eight dollars?
While I’m technically back from Christmas with the folks, I think my brain is still on holiday. So, in lieu of actual blogging content, let’s play a little game of “Who Got the Most Ridiculous Christmas Present?” I’ll go first.
The most ridiculous Christmas present I received this year was a card stuffed with twenty scratch-and-win lottery tickets. I walked away with ten dollars in winnings, but at a price of a dollar per ticket, it essentially cost the gift-giver twenty dollars to give me ten bucks in cash. Clever idea, that. I suppose this is one of those cases where it’s better to receive than to give.
So, what kind of ridiculous crap ended up under the tree at your place?
