“Secret Santas have always been a generally horrible experience. One time in the second grade, I had a boy for secret Santa and had absolutely no idea what to get him, so I thought a box of chocolates would be nice. Except that the poor kid turned out to be allergic to peanuts, so he was the only one without a present. I guess ‘life is like a box of chocolates’ doesn’t apply to that guy.

Funny story-I saw that kid the other day for the first time since elementary school…he remembers the whole thing”

Anna: One time in fifth grade my teacher wrapped us all different size gifts, then we had to all get in a circle and open them together.  It turned out to all be the same gift (annoyed face) , they were digital cameras with albums.  Some guys got pink ones.

Nina: Your teacher gave you digital cameras?

Anna: Yeah, it was in New Jersey, they’re really rich there.

(Day 13) Shaina Mathew

Shaina: “I give really good gifts only to get really bad ones in return.  I’m not kidding.  I got socks one time.  I love socks but like the fuzzy good quality ones, not like ones with words on it like “oh great” or weird stuff.  One of my friends who I really liked, I gave her a full out present, I gave her a snow globe, I gave her all this stuff.  Mind you I was in second grade, I wasn’t really creative with my gifts but I still gave her a pretty good gift.  And she gave me socks.  My parents were like, ‘Is that why you gave her all of this, to get socks?'”

Joel:  “One time I got a pack of gum and then they ate it- they didn’t even give it to me.”
