Baked Hams, and Bah Humbugs

Clare:  Woohoo!  Only five more sleeps till Christmas!

Dean:  We don’t have to buy each other gifts do we?

Clare:  Really?  Are we going to do this again?

Dean:  Do what?

Clare:  The whole “Christmas is just another retail rip off designed to make you spend money!”

Dean:  Well, it is.

Clare:  It’s not – It’s Christmas!  Time for loved one, baked ham, and humbugs.

Dean:  Don’t you mean ‘bah humbugs’?

Clare:  Oh, bah humbugs nothing!

Dean:  Well, we don’t have to buy for the kids any more.

Clare:  But what about buying something for ourselves?

Dean:  Why?  We have everything we need.

Clare:  Do we?

Dean:  Sure we do.

Clare:  What about that air compressor you want?

Dean:  What about it?

Clare:  I could buy it and wrap it, and when you open it on Friday morning you could say “Oh Wow!  Just what I’ve always wanted!”

Dean:  Whatever.  But I guess that means I’ll have to buy you something.

Clare:  Well that would be nice.

Dean:  What do you want?

Clare:  After all these years, can you not think of anything?

Dean:  I guess I can.

Clare:  Thank goodness for that.

Dean:  I know!

Dean:  Here’s $100 – go and buy yourself something pretty.

  1. We had a very similar conversation in our house this morning. I said words to the effect of ‘wouldn’t it be nice if you thought of and bought something for me that I haven’t had to pay for and wrap myself’.

      1. I also made a massive wish list and instructed children and other half to pick one item from it. The children succeeded in that, other half is lucky he can even figure out how to access the list – even though you just click and open.
