So, today, I was gifted with the RE-gift.
How do I know it was re-gifted, you ask?
It was not half eaten or even un-packaged. It was not ripped, torn or had the to and from tags marked out. It was still neatly attached to it’s original packaging. It was in it’s perfect new, without tags condition.
How did I know… because I was the initial giver of the gift.
At work, we play the Secret Santa game the last week we are in school before the Christmas break. Monday starts the fun and Friday is ended with the “big” gift given. Each day, we give a small token of happiness to our giftee.
The Santa names are all randomly chosen and this year, it so happens that MY SECRET SANTA (the gifter) is also MY SECRET SANTA (the giftee). We have each other! So, when I saw my small token of happiness back in my box this morning, I KNEW who my gifter was. There is no longer the secret that goes in the term Secret Santa. No more info kept under a hat or mums the word…
It has been revealed with the re-gift!
Does it make me mad? NO. I like the gift I got back. It’s a neat little pen that I had carefully chosen for my person, because it had a theme that I THOUGHT went perfectly with their subject matter. I must of thought wrong. Either that OR my person believed that I needed the little token more than they, because I THINK I listed that I liked school supplies on my Secret Santa get-to-know-me form. Who knows. Whatever the reason, I have the gift back. And either way, I’m fine getting the re-gift.
IN FACT, I think I will re-re-gift it on Friday when we give our “bigger” gift. Who knows, maybe I’ll have more re-re-gifts to put in their bag by then! HAHA!
That “bigger” gift may be a lot bigger and better and funnier (and perhaps a little awkward) than any gift I’ve ever given before!!!
The re-gift. Not always a bad thing.
