The Double Anniversary Surprise


For the first time in nine years, I get an anniversary gift from my wife. I naturally am delighted.

I spot the specially wrapped package – simply can’t wait to discover what’s inside. I hurriedly unwrap it – and I am truly delighted. Here’s a special gift that I have always wanted to own. (Don’t ask what it is – allow me a little privacy). It’s a bit expensive, but something that’s made my day.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. It’s something I can’t do without.

A week later, comes the second surprise. When I find the entry for the gift purchase on my credit card statement.

Well, you rob Manishwa to pay Manishwa. It’s a gift I could very well do without.
