Subject: RE: BS: What'd Ya Get?
OK, the absolutely BEST gift I got for Christmas was a complete lack of family dysfunction. My alcoholic father did not pass out in his mashed potatoes this year (no chorus of "Rebecca, hon, please scrape a couple of pits in the potatoes around grampa's nostrils so he doesn't suffocate"), my brother took him home so I didn't have to, and my sister was kind to her step-children. I loved it! It'll probably never happen again and I'm not sure what chain of cosmic events led up to it, but it sure was a treat.
