Christmas in August

forgot to mention in my earlier blog: i bought my first Christmas present today! I bought something for someone at Smith's Variety today in Homewood. Believe it or not, they were starting to put out their Halloween and Christmas decorations. I bought something Christmas-y and love the fact that they gift wrap for free. The sales clerk asked if this was a gift and did I want it wrapped. Yes, it is a gift and I'd like Christmas paper, please. She looked at me like I was crazy! After her initial confusion, she said "we don't have any Christmas paper out yet; maybe I have some leftover stuff in the back." I told her I wasn't picky -- plain white paper, gold or silver paper would be fine. Let this be a lesson to Smith's Variety: Don't put out Christmas gifts if you don't have Christmas wrapping paper. Duh!

Anyway, the sales clerk told me I was the first Christmas customer of the '08 season. Go me!!
