Christmas and the art of saying.....


"Oh, thank you!" When what you really mean is "Oh, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, NOT THAT!"
or"Oh, you shouldn't have" When what you really mean is "Oh, why DID YOU GET ME THAT?"
or "How thoughtful" When what you really mean is, "What made you think of THAT?"

And Christmas means learning to have a "poker face" too, when opening gifts. You have to be ready with a very firm, happy expression that cleverly hides the shock that you are feeling on the inside as you open the figurine that you were saying you liked so well while window shopping with your sister, just because she liked it. Little did you know she was going to buy you one! That'll teach you to be dishonest about your feelings next time!
