I must be sensitive, because to this day I still remember the present I received in the 4th grade grab bag. I gave Melissa a pair of 14 kt gold heart earrings (my parents were in the jewelry business) and in return I got a USED toiletry set. It burned my ass. In the most recent history, one of my husband's few blunders was getting me a handheld blender for my birthday. It is the most useless piece of kitchen equipment I have. But that's between me and you.
