So I go to Princeton to have dinner with my parents. After getting the Chinese food I walk into the kitchen and there on the kitchen table is a brand new Magellan GPS in its box. Tactfully, I pretend I don't see it and pick up the bottle of seltzer next to it.
So of course Iona sees all this.
At dinner she announces that I've seen my Christmas present.
Dad: Oh, well that's good because we were thinking about giving it to you early.
Iona: And borrowing it for our trip to Georgia over Christmas.
Here's an early Christmas weasel for you.
