I'm not a big meat eater and I hate seafood. But my dad's family is heavy on the seafood so every family gathering involves seafood of some kind. It's hard to be the odd one out.

This year, I got the best gift ever! Another year with my Dad.

My mom is drama so we've been estranged for almost 3 years now. So we spent Christmas with my BFF's family. We've been so close for so long that their mom actually scrapped food off her plate onto my husband's plate, like he was her son. My DH was fine with it but it was such a "I'm comfortable here" thing. No drama. No presents. Just amazing memories and relaxing times.

Maybe they thought you could us it for the dogs since you feed some of them raw

But still not appropriate.

OK, this was not a bad gift I got but thought it was worthy of a share!

My co-worker who is almost 70 years old got the 50 Shades of Gray trilogy from her grandson!! LOL! He had no idea just what he was giving her!
She says she will be taking it back....

Out of all the possible books available, why in the world would he choose those? How old is her grandson? And anyone not living under a rock knows the subject matter of them.

Crazy, isn't it!!! He is in the mid 20's and evidently he does live under a rock!!! LOL!
The kid comes by it naturally though, believe it or not, his mother had not heard of the books either!! LOL!!!
The salesperson at the store told him they were very popular for women and that was enough for him! Sold! (She was probably young and cute!)

I tried to think of the most appropriate way to tell you what 50 Shades of Grey is, but I couldn't come up with the best words to use, aside from telling you its a series of books. So, instead, I'll let amazon describe it to you, in case you were wondering..

"When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

This book is intended for mature audiences."

Hopefully he's not too embarrassed when he finally figures out what he gave his Grandma
