I have probably the best, wittiest, and most intelligent husband in the world. I would say “sexiest” but I write the sweet books and don’t want to shock anyone with that word. ANYWAY, he is also, as I mentioned in my last post, wonderful at choosing gifts that I’d never have thought I needed. He’s also creative, choosing gifts I’d never have guessed what they were before I opened the package. For example, one Christmas he gave me a stuffed animal–a cocker spaniel because we had several live ones as pets-with a radio in its tummy.
But I’m terrible at thinking of great gifts for him. He has plenty of T-shirts and has told me to buy him no more University of Louisville or Houston Texans shirts. We’re retired so his supply of ties from when he was a minister is sufficient to last until at least 2050, should we–and the earth–still be around. He orders and reads whatever books he wants on his Kindle. He’s not a smoker or a drinker and has plenty of Bibles and commentaries and meditations. He refuses to wear those onesies retired men wear and prefers sweatpants. He plays games on his computer and hates puzzles and does make stuff. Keep in mind we live in an apartment and have little space.
He does like chocolate but there’s a limit to how much I can get him. The one present I give every year is food. I go to a store with a nice display of gourmet foods and get him cheese and pickled treats and sardines. He has mentioned he’d like a new mattress but that’s not very Christmas-y and it’s hard to wrap.
Time is getting short. Please help me or George may find no packages for him under our tree!
