Mutual WANT lists [Friday 20th July 2018 at 6:14 pm]

The downside of elemnar and I sharing some interests is when I happen to be semi-randomly wandering round town and spot something that is on both of our WANT lists (like a wish list, except our mutual reaction to discovering the thing has been WANT). Then comes the awkward question-to-self: do I get it as a thing for myself, or does it become a present for her? And if it's the latter, do I get it now and then have it taunting me from the bag o' presents, or do I wait until nearer her birthday?

And has elemnar also found it and thinking the same thing? Yes, we've been known to get each other the exact same present at Christmas - we've done that at least twice now, and the first time neither of us had any idea we'd done so (much to The Gnu's amusement, who did know what was going on).

Anyway, I have bought... a shiny thing! Now to decide what to do with it...
