Mom gave Dad three gifts in cute little baskets.
The first was a note that said:
As a gift to you I did not spend any of your
hard-earned money on a shirt at JC Penney
or a sweater at Old Navy or a wallet at Sears.
As a gift to you, I did not spend any money
at Target, Kohl’s, or Ross.
As a gift to you I will continue to cook from
scratch instead of spending money on
eating out or convenience foods.
When the third note was opened, Mom said, “In case you haven’t noticed, Paul is very hard to buy for.”
