the gift of giving
I bought a card for a wonderful friend that was turning 30. Nile absolutely adores her, so when he found out I was going out for dinner with her for her birthday he had a lot of questions. Of course, he wanted to go along. But when I told him we were going to a boring fancy restaurant he decided to stay home. However, he was appauled when he found out that I didn't get her a present. Just a card! So he talked me into going to Walmart to pick out a present that would be PERFECT for her. During the ride there I asked what he had in mind. He said, "I know she likes doctors (she works for Hospice - where Nile says he will work some day), so lets get her a doctor present." I had no idea what he had in mind. Long story short, we left Walmart with an electric Spiderman toothbrush and Cars band-aids. And a StarWars (singing) card. But he made sure that there were a few of each item left in stock so that he could get them for his birthday. Thank God she is so wonderful. I think she loved them as much as he loved picking them out!
