I'll Cry If I Want To
The end of October is quickly approaching and that means just one thing. No, not my chance to steal lots of candy from kids. It means I'm entering into the figure out what you want everyone to get you time of the year. My birthday is in just 2 weeks and my family is pestering me about what I want. Of course Christmas is not too far out either which means more of the same.
As much as I love the gifts everyone gets me and especially the thought that goes into them, I really have a hard time saying "Get me this and that and one of those" Which is exactly what I'm supposed to do.
I guess my feeling is this... I am not rich, but I have lots of nice things. I don't have any needs, so I feel akward asking for anything, and don't give me the "thats what makes it fun, you can get something you don't need, it's just something you want."
I've said this for about the last 8 years and I just keep waiting for someone to take me serious. I'd rather someone sponsor one of those starving kids in Africa with the money they would normally spend on my gift and do it in my name so I get the cute letters and I can write notes back to them throughout the year.
Even better, I'd love this. I so want to give a waterbuffalo. Seriously
