Ever had someone come to you with stories of what “everyone” is saying? After a time you begin to clue in and you might ask, “who exactly is ‘everyone?'” Usually it comes down to a couple, maybe even just one other person … most likely THE person telling you?? Ever had someone say something like “you Canadians always (insert some obscure observation this person has heard about once when he was drunk).” Ever notice how people tend to make grand sweeping statements like this? Ever been accused of something you didn’t do because well, guilt by association and people wanted someone to pay for what had happened?
It is so hard to buy hunny bunny gifts. I was raised in a” celebrate every occasion” world and he was raised in a “meh – just another day” world. He likes to give wayyyy more than he likes to receive. I like both but I also have to say it is hard to buy gifts when you neither need or want anything.
