Ok, so we have all done it. We buy something for ourselves when we know we should be buying for others or not spending in the first place. Then we are riddled with guilt and are forced to confess or come up with a cover story. I opted for the later.
This is what I bought on a whim and for a great price. I could not pass it up. Even if it was 3 weeks before Christmas and there was a chance I could be gifted it because it was at the top of my Pyrex wish list.
The Starburst! In perfect, wonderful and amazing condition! So, this is the cover story I came up with. I decided I would wrap it, put it under the tree, make out a tag from Santa. I also, bought my spouse an additional gift and placed it under the tree from Santa. Guilt Free!
When it was time to open gifts, I said I wonder what those gifts are. I opened mine first and pretended that I had no idea what I was unwrapping. It was so much fun to see my spouses reaction. The plan worked like a charm. I didn't end up receiving another Starburst, thank goodness, because that would have made me feel bad. It ended up working out perfectly and was so funny when I explained how I had planned my Santa surprise.
