In light of the "tightness" of this season, we thought outside of the box for Stephen's office Christmas presents. Here's the story: My boss told me to take home some of the "gourmet" grapefruits (is there such a thing?) a business partner had given him; So, naturally my "gifting" wheels starting turning...how can I covert these into gifts?....First, I called Sur La Table here in Dallas (a speciality store, right by my house) and asked if they had grapefruit spoons and how much? To which they responded $1.95. $1.95?! Perfect. So I bought sugar packets and cut silk strips for ribbion, tied it all together, safety pinned the sugar to the ribbion...And voliah "Merry Christmas" to the office folk for 2 bucks.
But the one catch is I don't think everyone likes grapefruit, (do you? ). This may be less of a gift than I thought (Stephen said he was the only one who ate it at the office yesterday:). Personally, I've determined to eat grapefruit and drink black coffee in my adulthood, cause both are reserved entirely for adults (according to my childish mind;).
Oh and I ate my first grapefruit this morning (and had cream in my coffee)...Okay, I'm just "starting" to cross the threshold.
