Yesterday Derek and some friends had a party with a white elephant gift exchange. If you’ve never done one before it’s simple: everybody brings either a real or a gag gift, all gifts are placed together, and you choose numbers out of a hat. The first person chooses a gift, and the second (and everyone after) can either steal a previous gift or open a new one.
I went first. I opened a gift and found…
Water and grow dinosaurs! Yay! (And yes, that is Justin Bieber wrapping paper…) But wait…
There’s TWO presents….
JENNIE-O HOT DOGS! They were frozen and thus still cold. And like I said I was the first to choose a gift so no steals for me. And nobody was stealing those hot dogs from me (sigh). I was close to just putting them in the fridge and letting my friends keep them. But there were only 13 people in the swap, so at the end Derek suggested we do just a round of stealing and the first person can go first.
I ended up with some chocolate wine! And then chaos ensued as more swaps were done. It ended up being a great night with too many beers, lots of friends, and lots of laughs.
And yeah, this post is just an excuse to post those awesome pictures.
