Regifting

I got a funny call the other day – my mom, sounding slightly alarmed, asked me if I had time to talk.  She said she’d gotten a call about something I’d written in my blog.  My first thought was “Someone is still reading my blog?” and my second, “Did I accidentally write something offensive?”

It turned out that in my post about Indian Cauliflower I mentioned that I’d gotten a spice kit/cookbook that a family friend didn’t want.  The only problem was, the kit was a gift from his daughter, then he gave it to my mom, and then she gave it to me.  And all three of them read the blog post.

At least everyone got a good laugh out of it, and I’m still enthusiastic about the gift, even if it wasn’t for me!

  1. Actually, I’m not the regifter, I’m just where the regifting ended, ha ha. I usually have a hard time coming up with anything that I’d regift.

  2. I can understand how it would feel to be the original gift-giver, but this at least ended happily. You sincerely enjoyed the gift, even if it wasn’t meant for you at first, so it wasn’t going to waste. Funny story, though!
