Snooping

I love surprises, but I hate anticipation. Luckily, I love surprises more than I hate anticipation. So you can only imagine what this time of year and the gift giving spirit does to me. Especially when Tim is constantly telling me how awesome my gifts are but won’t even hint as to what they are.

I am always super tempted to snoop, but I don’t. I think about it, and then think hard about it, and then start walking over to where I think the gifts are hidden, and then I catch myself and walk away.

When I was a kid I wanted a Barbie camper more than anything in the world. I found where my mom hid the Christmas gifts and took a peak. There it was, my Barbie camper. I was so excited! But I had no one to share my excitement with.

When Christmas day came, I pretended to be surprised, which sucked compared to actually being surprised. Everyone else was opening gifts and were all so excited, and I was disappointed because I didn’t feel like that too.

So there you go. As much as I want to know, I will not snoop. It’s just not as fun.
