COLUMN: Making-up an excuse to omit Christmas list items
The other day my daughter was reading off her Christmas list.
"My own room, my own laptop..." it began. I think she likes to start me off with a laugh to get me in a good mood. Either that, or she is perpetually optimistic.
Further down the list, she gets a bit more realistic. "Cute tops" confuses me though - does she really trust me to pick out "cute" tops for her? I do everyone a favor and skip that item.
