My mother asked me what I want for christmas.
I opened my mouth (metaphorically, as it was a written question online) to answer and then shut it again.
The past few years I have decided on a specific item I want/need and I have gotten that, usually in advance or later. It is a really sad business not having any gifts on christmas eve and I usually fall asleep crying. Since this year is heading the same way (already got my birthday gift from mother, two months in advance, ho-ho merry christmas and happy birthday by the way, but I needed it and I am happy, don't misunderstand me.)
Last year my only christmas gift was the one from work, sitting in lonely majesty under my christmas bamboo. I knew what it was cause those rude fuckers at work tore open theirs right in front of me. Still.
So I compiled a wishlist for her. Here you go Mum - you can pick one or more items and surprise me.
