Yankee Gift Swap
Last night was the holiday party for work and it was at a nice restaurant. My Sprout was a sweetheart and came out for it so I could show him off. He was a hit, of course. The supervisor of the department talked to him for a while about punk bands since the day he noticed my Naked Raygun t-shirt which I explained was my boyfriend’s not mine. One of the analysts talked to him for a while about string instruments since she played the cello.
There was a yankee gift swap which meant you were supposed to wrap up something from your house and give it as a gift. Everyone picks a number and you pick a present and each person can switch with the other person. I gave a frame we never used and luckily I got #1 which meant I would get whatever I wanted. I almost ended up with a scary reindeer mug but instead got a framed picture suited for the kitchen.
Lastly they handed out awards and this was mine. Anyone surprised?
