So, dear reader: what unexpected gifts have you received that you still remember fondly? Would an anonymous banjo ever have simply made your day? Or would it freak you right out to the point that you would change cities and your name?
I ask because it appears that there are some people like the anonymous banjo gift guy at Metafilter who really are confused about how gestures that work well in romantic comedies actually play out in real life.
Parting thought for the parents amongst us: how well do your kids react to totally unexpected gifts that they’ve never dropped you any hints for?
