They both start with C.

So the confusion is obvious. China.....Canada.

My husband went to Canada for four days on business. I told him to bring me back something good. I told him not to bring me back anything contemporary or masculine. He said, "Then I have no idea what to get you." So this is what he brought me.....



Some lovely Chinese paper, that I will, um, uh, do something with.






A gigantic amount of green tea.







And this; he dramatically whisked out of his bag and proclaimed, "What Mommy doesn't need one of these?!"




Uh, I can think of at least one Mommy who doesn't need or want one of those. So next time I'll add, don't bring me anything Oriental to the list. But, thanks for trying Hon.

I love (!) that shirt! But is it a crop top? You should try it on for us.

Now, the paper... seriously? Save it to wrap up his Father's Day gifts. Or roll it back up and thump him on the head.

Okay, I'm lost. He went to Canada not the Orient...lol I can totally see this as a great Halloween costume for 07, very hot.

He gets major points for trying. How sweet.

Maybe you could salvage the paper by using for scrapbooking. If you do scrapbooking. At least green tea is good and drinkable. I agree with hope4grace, he gets the points for trying.

Well, it's about time you post again! I am actually feeling a little bad for Clay. I am glad to see all these women who gave him points for trying. It's great that he has a good sense of humor about the whole thing.

Okay, you ladies are being waaaaaay to nice. He's been reading these comments and feeling very smug. You all are not helping me in my plight.

and, many years ago after he gave me an XXL man's performance fleece pullover in red/gray and black from Old Navy I said, "Never buy me clothes again.....please."

Okay, I see your point now. At least your man didn't bring you home sexy clothes from Mexico in size Large. (Yes, they fit but that is Sooooooooooo not the point.)
