I've got a "Secret Santa" story that just may top Becca's for humiliation value. For our work party/secret Santa blowout this year, I contributed some back issues of "Cat Fancy" (still trenchant reading, I assure you) which I was hard pressed to part with...actually, it was Amy's idea. Anyhoo, by the end of the gift exchanging frenzy, I had somehow received my heartfelt gifts BACK! Is this some kind of a first? Has anyone ever had a Christmas gift refused before? Is this worse than holding a garage sale where no one will stoop to buy the stuff you once bought (albeit for much more money)? Or is this merely karma for my "yard sale dirty sock" faux pas?
P.S.--Nix the porcelain figurines; Jeff Koons has already been there.
