Great Moments in Masculinity

A brief discussion of Christmas gifts was had this afternoon.

Allison: I can’t forget to wrap that one last thing I have for you.

Me: If you forget you can just keep whatever it is [laughs].

Allison: It wouldn’t do me any good. It’s a very Craig gift.

Me [thinks what would be useful for me and not for Allison]: What is it? Razor blades?

Allison: What? No. Why? Do you need razor blades? 

Me: It’s just the first thing that popped into my head when you said it was a very masculine gift.

Allison: I didn’t say it was “very masculine.” I said it was “very Craig."
