On a few occasions  when I was a lot younger,  I tried giving gifts I really wanted to family members in the hopes that they wouldn’t like them and give them back to me or that I could pilfer without much notice. The problem is, that almost never works. Fortunately, last week I got my mom a couple of videogames for her birthday that I thought she’d like, and she didn’t make me return them so apparently I’ve grown up a little. 🙂
