White Elephant
The picture's small and grainy, but if you can make out my face, you'll still only know half my excitement upon unwrapping a set of lavendar hand and foot lotions.

The rules to The White Elephant Game seem to change every year. Last time, when we were told to bring crap, I re-gifted a Big Mouth Billy Bass (don't worry, I still had one left over for myself).

Suddenly this year the theme was Good Stuff, even though we were still calling it White Elephant. Whatever. I bought a gift card to The Coffee Bean. Then, during our holiday potluck, everything came unwrapped: cat and dog salt and pepper shakers; a kid's matching game; a small dog in a silly pose that can only be described as "something you'd find at WalMart." What wasn't bad was for ladies: the lotions, for example.

When it was over, I said, "Seriously, does anyone want this? 'Cause I'll probably throw it away." Someone traded me for a bottle of Bailey's-esque.

Kids, the moral to this holiday tale is if you don't get what you want, just complain.
