Dear Secret Santa,
I know you were trying to be funny (ha, ha) when you gifted me with the matching earrings and necklace. How were you to know that I absolutely adore bells in any way shape or form? The year after our gift exchange, I wore the whole set, but decided that the necklace was a tad too noisy for cubicleland. In the ensuing years, I wore the earrings proudly; my tacky flag flying. But then I lost one of the earrings. Boohoo. Never fear! I am once again wearing the remaining earring as part of my Countdown.
So thank you, Secret Santa, for a gift that really does keep on giving.
