Prezzie time

My sister will be 21 at the end of the month.

Me: What do you want for your birthday?
She: I dunno.
Me: That’s not an answer. What do you want? People are asking me.
She: I dunno.
Me: You can’t say I dunno. Say something.
She: Anything.
Me: Anything is not something. It doesn’t solve my problem. What must I tell people? What do you want?
She: (Pause).
I dunno.

I just love how mature she’s turning out to be.

    You should give her a piece of paper with “Anything” written on it – would be amusing for a laugh.

    Then wip out the real present!

    She probably just wants money – hence the anything. I used to always say that when I just wanted money

  7. Toby Hanks said,

    Hmmm…didn’t think of that DMM. I love the paper bit. But how do I know how much money though? that’s the problem. She’s inredibly high-maintenance!

    I always want more expensive things, so I find it hard what to say to people – don’t want them to spend too much moola on me. So easy to tell people what my husband wants though! There’re some gifts that are pretty safe though: books (does she read?!), DVDs, CDs, jewellery…

    In a bid to get rid of spam I may have deleted my last comment…never a good sign. Anyway…
    I hear you Gnome – I also always end up wanting things that cost a fortune. But books are always a safe bet with me!
