Charlie Bear here. I see signs of Christmas coming. Bright, colored lights, a sparkly tree, stockings hung by the chimney with care…oh, okay, I’ll stop there.
I do think Christmas is a joyous time, don’t you? Lots of munchy tidbits when family and friends drop things unexpectedly, and I’m always there, waiting. Yum!
But there’s a huge question hanging in the air: to re-gift or not to re-gift? Do you know what I mean?
You get a bag of doggie treats that you already have three of, or a toy turtle that you can’t use because you love the one you have so much and it would be, well, just wrong to love another. Or, say, you get something totally out of character. Like for me, an 18 pound wonder dog, to receive a two-foot long rawhide chew bone that I can’t even get my mouth around one corner–well, that would be just silly.
Ever get gifts out of character for you? I say it’s perfectly fine to re-gift, as long as you don’t chew on it first or rub your fur all over it and make it smelly. A new home would give the gift someplace to go instead of into the basement or attic (we have neither here in California…oh, ok, we do have an attic but you wouldn’t want to go up there).
Anyway, how do you feel about re-gifting? Tell, please, what have you redistributed to a new home?
