Ah... the spirit of Christmas!

You aren't kidding. I've failed at perfume ("old lady scent"), clothing (not "trendy" enough), jewlery (not "gold" enough), gems (not "big" enough), lingerie (suited more to my fantasy than her taste), and money (what's the point... I work to earn it and she spends whatever she spends whter I like it or not). We just gave up as a way of saving our marriage.
