DON’T write the name of the gift you plan to buy at the very top of your grocery list in ALL CAPS and underlined with lots of exclamation points and then leave it on the fridge for all to see.
DON’T Have your 13 year old son ask your husband random questions about how to “smoke stuff” and expect him to nonchalantly be able to turn that conversation into a way of finding out what the best kind of smoker is because he will not be able to pull it off. Who could?
DON’T buy something that’s so heavy you can’t get it out of the car and therefore have to leave a giant box in the back that cannot even be covered up by a blanket.
DON’T have a secret meeting in the back of the house about going ahead and giving the gift to Daddy because you have already failed miserably at keeping a secret because he’s in the next room and you don’t know it and he will hear your 7 year old shout, “Noooo! We can’t tell him about his new smoker!”.
DON’T leave the Wal-Mart add open with the potential gift item showing on the kitchen counter, because it will defintiley leave a clue.
You don’t have to be smart in this house to figure stuff out…
Happy (um, early) Father’s Day, Honey!
We love you! XXOO
