It’s better to receive than to give

QUICKIE: Vincenzo was passing out pretend squirt guns and he gave me two, explaining, “…because Mommy is special because she says ‘I love you’ every day.'”
People who know us personally are the luckiest people in the world, especially when it comes to receiving our gifts.  If you’ll remember, there was a Build-a-Clyde kit for my sister’s boyfriend’s birthday.

And you haven’t forgotten my sports calendar for Kevin this year. 


Then there was the Christmas when we created our own company and offered my sister a free hour of service on her broken sink:

And now, now, we’ve put together this little somethin’-somethin’ for our bro-in-law:

I know you are all wishing your name were Bill right now.  Or that you had gotten us something for Christmas.  Well chances are it’s not and you didn’t.  And now that you know what you’re missing, chances are your life feels rather empty.  Sorry ’bout that.
