I'm a cotton-headed ninny-muggins

I go to a lot of trouble to come up with thoughtful Christmasgift ideas.  Even with the little things, like stocking stuffers, I go to I make an effort to assure they stay a surpriseuntil the big day.  Obviously, that’seasy to do with friends and relatives who don’t live with me.  With hubby, it’s a lot harder.   We livein a tiny little condo and we’re practically on top of each other all the timeand there are very few places to hide things. 

Not withstanding, usually I do a pretty good job of it, though . . .  with the exception of this year.  I amaze myself at depths of my battiness; sometimes.  Thankfully, it wasn’t the BIG gift but itwasn’t a minor gift either.  And, itsurely would have been a surprise.

I was all clandestine and being sneaky about getting thisone particular gift and I know he had no idea. Until I sent an email to the person I bought it from.  It went to a distribution list that includedhubby.  Stupid stupid stupid.

But I didn’t even realize it until he accused me from buyingthis thing out from under him.  And he was all snotty about it, too.  What?  It was supposed to be a surprise forhim.  What was he talking about?  Why was he angry?  Ah! You see. . . he was going to buy it for me.  Go figure.

So I cried . . . kicked myself . . . pouted.  Whatever. Surprise hunny!  Merry Christmas!

And yes, even I am an asshat occasionally.
