Twice a year I have a mighty headache.
What do I buy for Herself for Christmas and Birthday.
Frankly she has everything she needs and the only thing she wants is more clothing. Seeing as she has two rooms full of clothing I put my foot down and made a rule – for every item of clothing she buys, she has to select two items to be dumped. So she stopped trying to buy clothes.
So what do I give her?
Well, the only practical thing that doesn’t require vast storage space is jewellery. But here I run into another problem. You see, she claims she has allergic skin so any item of jewellery has to be either pure gold or pure silver. If I buy anything less than around 95% purity she bitches that she’ll only come out in a rash if she wears it.
Now I could lash out hundreds on a necklace or a ring or whatever but fuckit – I’m not made of money.
This year I hit upon the perfect Christmas present for her. What’s more it will have far reaching consequences in the future and in my pocket.
I bought her a tube of Hydrocortisone.
