YKW: *casually puts wrapped gift on living room table, he knows full well that I can't deal with temptation of a wrapped gift. Ever. It is torture.*
me: What's that? My birthday present? Can I open it?
me: *thinking for sure it is a TRICK!* Really?
YKW: *not paying attention to me typing on the computer* Yep.
me: *even MORE thinking it is a trick* Can I REALLY open it?
YKW: Yep. *clickety click click click type type* It's just an empty box so if you want to open it go ahead.
me: Damn it! Really? Can I seriously open it? Are you tricking me? Why is it empty? It's really empty?
YKW: Open it. It's just a place holder so you had something to open.
me: Well that isn't fun! Can I still open it?
( If I may interject here... You see how sad I am folks? I would rather open an empty box than to not open anything at all and today isn't even my real birthday.)
me: *running over to get the box* Wait there is something in there!
