One time my Mom messed up....but I have to say 99 per cent of the time she was good at finding the right gifts. One time....in my 20's and married....she gave me what looked like State Issued prison clothing...only the trousers part were shorts! I said, "Gee Mom thanks for the pajamas...!" She looked at me sternly and said...."Those are not pajamas...you are to wear them casually outside!" (I was thinking Mom....I'm not wearing these at all!!!laughing ....not even to bed!!!laughing laughing ) Later when I tried the outfit on...which fit....(shucks) my brother said, "You look like half of Laurel and Hardy!" But all I thought was that I looked like I went to State Penn....instead of Penn State!

The worst gift I ever got for Christmas was at a gift exchange at a business association Christmas party when I was a child. My mother got a little doll when she drew her number, and my father got a winner's ribbon in his gift. I was given the last gift under the tree by the Santa in attendance. I was so excited, because to me, the gifts my parents got were so cool, so I ripped off the wrapping paper of my box and opened it and started to cry. Not kidding, I was so upset that I was in tears. My mother could not stop laughing however. Here I was, a five year old, and my gift was a pair of adult grandma white cotton bloomers underwear (the kind that go to the knees) in a very, very large size, several sizes plus. I had no use for these things that were so big I could fit in one leg. Why couldn't I get a doll or a ribbon?
