Pass the Bottle

A few years ago someone gave my wife and I a bottle of Boone's Farm at a wine tasting party as a gag gift. I can't stomach the stuff so I regifted it. Since that time the bottle has traveled all over Chicago and has come back to me at least twice, and yesterday my wife got it as a birthday present. It has provided countless hours of fun as I snicker while sending it at the post office or when it arrives on my doorstep. It reminds me that some of the best gifts aren't ones that we agonize over choosing or that we spend crazy amounts of money on. No some of the best gifts are just stupid trinkets that bring friends closer together and help us to laugh.
