PLANNING FOR CHRISTMAS
THIS YEAR I WILL FINISH MY SHOPPING EARLY!!!!!!
Every year I end up racing around last minute doing my Christmas shopping, which makes Christmas more of a chore than a celebration. This year, I am going to start early and get it right. I will I will I will!!!!!!!
It seems that men have had this problem for a long time...according to this 1951 Ad by Embees of Charleston, Seven out of Ten Men wait until the last minute to do their Christmas Shopping! And then, if they follow Embees' advice, they come home with something called "OOmphies", for $2.96 (Free Gift Wrapping!) which are described as a darling little Slidealong Scuff in matching or contrasting colors. (One foot red one foot blue?) Hmmmm. Good Advice?
Well OK, so Slippers for Christmas....could be acceptable if used as the decoy gift for the little blue box from Tiffany's. I think I need to take a poll...Take Poll
