Doublespeak - Blue States

This Christmas was the year of doubles. Of course Dad didn't get doubles, because he's very clear and decisive about what he needs and wants.

The rest of us, have work to do. James nearly got two copies of Mario Galaxy. Youngest B got two pairs of Minnetonkas. . . and so on. There's nothing wrong with doubles, it's kind of a happy surprise. James and I couldn't decide which pair of shoes my sister would love. So we got them both. They remind me of brightly coloured sweets in a box. (She picked the red).

Meanwhile, I complained about the couples failure to deliver when it comes to presents. . . but what about the delightful couple that gives you the same two Moleskine planners unknowingly? Well. . . they're the loveliest friends a girl could ask for, that's all!
