A couple of years ago our family did the
grab-bag swap thing for Christmas gifts. Everyone was supposed to bring a gift
that would be appropriate for anyone in the family. "Anyone" includes men, women, boys, girls, young and old. We've got big people and little people and a variety of tastes and interests. Other family members brought food and
gag gifts and stationery. Except my mother. She brought a pair of ladies
brown sling-back pumps, size 7. I'm still speechless.
