Well, I broke my streak last night, I fell asleep instead of finishing up my post.
It happens. I fall asleep a lot. At the end of the night. TV on. A little Pinterest skimming or YouTube browsing. Blog hopping. I drift off.
Sometimes I drift mid conversation. Chicklet especially loves that.
Today's blog prompt over at NaBloPoMo is "have you ever given a gift that wasn't well received?"
The short answer is yes.
The long answer is yes, all the time!
I am guilty of giving "bad" gifts all the time.
It's not that I hate the person or have bad taste. It's not that I'm a big jerk, although I get accused of that often.
Sometimes it's because I wait too long to go what I need to do. I guess that's the nice way to say I'm lazy.
Sometimes it's because I live a little too much inside my head. The gift seems like a great idea to me, and I'll have a big pile of reasons why but it doesn't translate. It can be that it is something significant to me or something that I believe will be significant to the receiver, but in reality it isn't. It's just a miss. Sometimes I think it's part of a shared memory or inside joke or an inside moment, but in reality it is something just being a big deal inside my own mind.
None of that probably makes sense outside of my head, but it's the longer answer to, yeah, I give lousy gifts all the time, even though I have good intentions and my heart in the right place.
What's the worst gift you ever gave?
