Christmas Eve Eve shopping

I went to a busy Target this evening.  The muscled, shaved-head man ahead of me in line was buying presents for what I imagined to be two daughters: a sparkly pink princess dress, a large floor-size board game, Duplos, a “Mamma Mia!” dvd, People magazine, art supplies…  The cashier dutifully asked if he needed a gift receipt; he declined because his gifts were clearly selected based on his very specific children and their unique lives, preferences, and personalities.  I admired what appeared to be a perfect assortment of gifts.

I bought laundry detergent, non-Q-Tip-brand cotton swabs, large garbage bags, mouthwash, and four cans of Purina Alpo Prime Cuts in Gravy Beef dog food.  She did not offer me a gift receipt.
