Complimentary: given free as a gift, a courtesy or for publicity purposes
For Christmas, The Girl and I were each given a very peculiar gift.
From my mother.
To Mavis… Love Mom
To The Girl Who Thinks She’s a Bird… Love Granny
This is reason #1 why I don’t post pictures of my family.
“They just keep putting new stuff out everyday. They way I see it, I PAID FOR THAT whether I use it or not. So of course I’m going to take it.” Mom
“If I can’t use it, I’ll find someone else who can.”
It helps that they’re from different restaurants, right?
Sugar in the raw.
You’d be nuts to walk past a hotel tray left outside a stranger’s door and not swoop up any unopened bottles. Right? If only I cared about my nails.
I don’t even want to know.
It was kind of like trading Halloween candy after trick-or-treating. But not.
My Mom. No one could ever accuse her of not taking a “complimentary item.”
P.S. Everything we received in our gift boxes will be used, donated, or recycled in some clever way. No worries. None of it will go to waste. 😉
P.P.S. What is the strangest thing you’ve ever received as a gift?
