A White Elephant Gift Exchange Gone Bad! APB Eastward Dress Coat in Small!

***Please let me know if you see, or are planning to return, an Eastward Dress Coat in size Small***

Don't you just hate it when this happens?

There were at least Thirty people participating in a White Elephant Gift Exchange. We drank unfiltered Saki, ate lobster and steak fired up on a 2x4 foot hibachi, by a knife wielding cook, throwing hot mustard and flames, as we roasted against a plate glass window in the late afternoon.  

Ha-ha....On My Birthday no less!  

I bring a safe gift that is at least useful to all.  (a $20 Target gift card)  I draw #2.  Gift #1 was shot glasses.  A pass for me.  

So what do I do?  

I chose a new gift that turns out to be...
A White Elephant Gift Exchange!

Ladies!  It dances.  It lights up!  It plays..."Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer."  Oh yes it does.  BTW, I'm not a Grandma.

There was no hope that anyone would steal this dancing hat full of awesomeness away from me.  I couldn't even find an image of this Dan Dee Choice Collectible.  It's out there now, because I put it there.

I'll be scouring Lowe's for this wicked little Garden Gnome this weekend. 

In the mean time, I must admit, the hat is growing on me.

I hope you are all doing well this holiday season.
