So, I bought - a gift - for - someone. It was something I found online that I really liked, for someone I really like.
And when the gift arrived, I scrambled to open it before I mailed it on - I wanted to see what it looked like. To my surprise, it wasn't anything like the picture. I was disappointed and talked to a relative about it, who reassured me that it was a awesome gift, still - even if it didn't look like what I thought it would look like, and the recipient would be most pleased.
Later that day.....
My kid came into my office in complete and utter hysterics. "Mom! Mom! I ordered your Christmas gift online and you are going to HATE IT. It doesn't look anything like what it did online!"
I reassured her that I would love it, and shared with her that, in fact, the same thing had happened to me earlier that day. I shared my story with her, and asked, "Do you want to see the gift I bought? Here it is. And look, here's the picture - it doesn't look anything like it, does it?"
She started laughing, and held out her hand. I looked at her, puzzled, and she opened her fingers
And we'd bought the same.exact.gift.
