The Gift of Not Giving

Don't you love friends who really get you? You don't have to pussyfoot around them. You can just be upfront with them and more times than not, you're both on the same page. Leslie is one of these friends. Check out this email exchange:

BTW, got the package. Thanks so much. We had such a great time visiting. So here is my question: are we exchanging Christmas gifts? I'm such a wienie I have to ask.

I'm good with exchanging "New Year's" presents. ;o)
I am SSSOOOO behind right now. I haven't even started shopping for Kaiden yet, I still need a couple of things for Kurt, and my grandparents won't get their pictures until January. How lame am I?

We could give the gift of not giving. That's where we use the time we would have used to shop, wrap and mail the presents to think of happy thoughts of each other!

That sounds good. Or we could buy ourselves something & say it's from the other. Example, I think you're giving me a new pair of jeans. What am I giving you? ;o)

You're buying me some hot rollers that I need for my new haircut. Thanks! Am I buying you jeans from that store at Northpoint?
