I used to dread that question, because I buy what I want when I want/need it. So I would get shirts for Father’s Day. Always very nice shirts, but hard to get excited about.
Now I ask for what I don’t need, or can never have enough of. In the past it has been golf balls, golf tees, golf towel, a DVD.
This year, the answer is:
- Four pounds of M & M’s
Why four pounds? Because my daughter called one day and said she bought herself (and hubby) a four pound bag of M & M’s! Probably a B.J.’s deal.
She responded by email, “OK, I’ll get you the dark chocolate because that is good for you.”
No. I want the regular chocolate. And I want regular size M & M’s, not the large ones. I don’t like the large ones. I know what I want, and I want it.
was my response.
Her response back was “O.K. you big baby.”
Next year I’m going to ask for respect!
Update: The Boomer Blog writes about the ad campaign for the dark chocolate using the Addam’s Family. I have to admit when I saw the website for the dark chocolate M&M’s I thought it was pretty cool.
This pitch-perfect imitation of the show’s classic opening, right down to the finger snaps, was the public’s favorite new TV spot when introduced, according to AdAge.
