Who Cares What You Want for Christmas?

Mom: The kindle cover you picked out for Christmas is ugly. I’m buying you a different one.
Me: Why do you care?! It’s not for your own kindle and you’ll never have to even see it.
Mom: It has velcro on it. Seriously? VELCRO.
Me: Mom, it’s the one I want.
Mom: Who cares what you want?

Who can ask for anything more?

Mom: In a month it will be Christmas Eve! Last night I came up with the idea of a Wii system for our gift to ourselves. Then we will be able to exercise and have fun and be in the air conditioning. Who can ask for anything more? Dad will be researching.
Me: Oooh, love that idea! Do you mean the Wii Fit, with the pad that you stand on, or just the regular things that you hold in your hands?
Mom: I have no idea. I thought I was being way cool just to come up with the general theme. Now you want specifics! Get out of here…

Love, Mom
