Change of cart

This year’s Christmas gifts will avoid past mistakes, wherein I purchased clothes in the wrong size, color and style; tech gizmos out of use three years ago; jewelry that looked expensive online; hand tools with no purpose whatsoever.

Instead: salt and pepper shakers shaped like Oregon, wise frig magnets (“Silence is golden. Duct tape is silver.”), talking bottle opener that says “Pop!” and grownup footie jammies.

Grownup footie jammies may be a risky choice, but the tag says “One size fits all.”

I take that as a guarantee.

About Mrs. Fitz

Hello! I'm Michele Fitzpatrick, a Chicago writer. Like our town, a work in progress. As a journalist, teacher and writing coach I think all of us live our stories and sharing them creates moments that remind us we're connected. And that is enough.

    Speaking of grown-up footie jammies, we went to the Christkindlmarket and a friend took the recommendation of a salesman to buy XL. Turns out they were too big.
    Risky business indeed.
