It must be said that Mr. TheKing is extraordinarily generous but truly needs help when it comes to gift giving. Even when provided with an explicit wish list, he often goes rogue and tends to favor practicality over desire, which, although useful, is also a bit…um…boring… Two years ago, we decided not to get each other a gift for both Hanukkah and Christmas, or so I thought:

30 days of thanks: day 29
Mr. TheKing: I got you a Hanukkah present.
Me: You did? I didn’t know we were doing that this year. (I’m intrigued and excited)
MTK: Well, it’s “for you-for me”
Me: Does that mean it’s for me and somehow benefits you? (I’m suspicious)
MTK: Kind of…
Me: Vodka? (Maybe that bubblegum flavored one I’m kinda curious about)
MTK: Better than vodka.
Me: What could be better than vodka? (I say jokingly…but not really)
He pulls out a bottle of Polo Sport…
Me: Oh! So it’s for you and you think it will somehow benefit you too…I get it! Vodka would have worked better.
He just smirks.
Today, I am thankful for my husband’s sense of humor and the fact that he still sees me as 24. He keeps me laughing on the inside…and feeling young & pretty on the outside.
