Why men never get what they want for Christmas.

These are realistic examples of the online chats that Colin and I have had regarding Christmas presents.

Colin: What do you want for Christmas?
Erin: Oh, I'm glad you asked. I made a list of links to the items I want. I gave you lots of options so that I can still be surprised. :)

-Amazing necklace
-Another great necklace
-This dvd set
-Or this dvd
-Medium cookie scoop
Etc., etc., etc.

The sweater is really quite appropriate since most men, when asked what they want for Christmas, respond like they are living in the Bozone.
When asked what he wanted for Christmas, your Grandpa Flory would never give me a real answer either. He ALWAYS responded, "Peace on Earth". He never got that, but I ever heard any complaints about the See's Candies I'd give him. Conclusion: Men will ask for weird stuff, but they like FOOD the best.
