The Usual Christmas Post, Part 2: What Was Your Favorite Prezzie?
Because I always want to know: What’s the best gift you got for Christmas this year?
For me, I’m still waiting to get home to open presents from my Dad and my stepbrother’s family, but thus far the winner is the straight-razor shaving kit Gini got me:
The reason I like this so much is because what I originally requested was a straight razor with a swappable razor, one you never needed to strop. When I opened the kit, I said to Gini, “This is good, but it’s got the regular razor. I’d suggested the switchable one.”
“Oh,” Gini said sheepishly. “I didn’t want you to use some pansy-ass blade.”
Oh, my wife; she thinks as I do, even when I’m too scared to do the job proper.
My other gift this Christmas was also awesome – I got my fire poi!
Between the straight razor and the flaming balls to set myself ablaze with, I’m not entirely sure Gini wants me around, but I’m happy she’s indulging my self-destructive qualities. And I’m also glad that Gini was the first one to whack herself in the head with the poi, making her the official first recipient of Poi Blood.
Merry, merry Christmas! So enough about me. What made you happiest under the tree this holidays?
