Do you like to give or get?

Presents that is! Vcook ... get your mind out of the gutter.

This Christmas season, are you most excited about what you will be giving or what you will be getting?

But since its not I'll play along, I like giving the best, but I do like to get some nice things also. I do have expensive taste and even more expensive hobbies, so its hard to buy for me and I understand that.

I'm actually pretty good at buying for others especially my wife as I am very observant.

For example this year I noticed that her mop was getting a little ragged so I picked her up a brand new one. oh and I like to buy a lot of gifts as well, nice thing is all the presents can go together but be separate, for instance the new bucket I got her to with that mop can be wrapped seperatly which just increases the suspense and excitement. also that bottle of mop and glo makes a great stocking stuffer

I like to make people feel bad by getting them better things then they got me.

Like my inlaws grab bag 50 dollar limit. Got my person an ipod shuffle with some tunes on it.

I am the best.

I'm rather simple too, anything I really want I'll just save up and get myself and right now I don't really want/need anything...maybe a time machine to get the hell out of college and finals but that's not really feasible. My sister just had a baby so getting him something cool will be fun and I noticed my sister's purse is kinda falling apart so I plan on getting her something similar and she has no idea about it. The observant thing can really make someone feel good cause it means you took the time to notice what they wanted...except when it's a mop, that's just mean.

A toothbrush, jar of comet and a dixie cup is mean.

A mop and bucket is efficient. Throw in some good female logic like "Look Honey, I'm saving you time!" and you're good to go.

I am better at giving. I seem to get the perfect gift for people pretty easily. On the other hand I alway get shit I don't want from people. I mean real shit....once received a fucking picture frame and a car lock de-icer as a gift. Then again all year long I usually just buy the shit I want for myself when I want it.

I really enjoy giving presents to others, especially kids. I love to see their expressions and how excited they get when they open it. It makes me feel good.

However, I love to receive presents also but I have expensive tastes and hobbies so unless you're going to drop some $$$, I'm hard to buy for.

Years ago my parents signed us up with headstart. for Christmas we used to go shopping, buy a bunch of toys and go deliver them to homes around the area of less fortunate families. That was a great experience, if we ever do have kids this is something I will do with them.

That is the beauty of a blow job. It is full of Christmas cheer. It epitomizes the Holiday gift giving spirit. It's reciprocity at its finest. She gives me a blow job and I give her a hot steamy load of dick snot right down her throat and all over her face.


On a side note, in the name of the Holiday gift giving season, I would like to quote a scene from Will and Grace:

"Today I'm handing out lollipops and ass-whoopins and right now, I'm alllllllllll out of lollipops."

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Depends on for who, but I usually like giving...The shopping part is the hardest for Christmas where you have to stand in line for a half hour to buy something that you HOPE the person will like.
