It can’t be. I haven’t finished shopping, and Christmas is around the corner. I’ve hardly started it. My son Nathaniel keeps bugging me, asking what I want. Then again, he isn’t sure what he wants. Whereas Rosanne has already shopped for both of us. And everyone.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the Christmas season, despite the shopping. Why is it others never tie themselves up in knots when buying gifts? I’m a mess. Choosing what a friend or family member might like is, for me, hit or mostly miss.
I’m also all thumbs when it comes to wrapping them while a good friend, Ron Stannett, the cinematographer, is all fingers. He could take any present no matter how difficult to wrap turn it into a work of art.
Author’s comment: Getting family or friends the right present is truly something else. Don’t get me wrong, I love this season. It’s a good time to connect with family or friends. If we’re lucky enough to have them. Some people aren’t that fortunate. That’s the sad bit.
