I was actually there when they were choosing a present for me in the jewelery shop. Suddenly my uncle started looking at this really expensive stuff and his wife asked me if I liked any of the earrings there. I said I did. So they asked me to choose a pair I liked the most and my uncle would buy it. So I chose a pair of earrings, and he actually did buy them, and the clerk put them in a fancy gift box, which I received later when we got home. Imagine my surprise when I saw that they gave me another pair of earrings, not the ones I had chosen in the store! The wife explained to me that she bought the earrings I had chosen for her son’s girlfriend (as she trusts my taste), and I’m getting these ones instead. Don’t worry, she said, your pair was just as expensive!
I’m not complaining. I like my new earrings. But isn’t it a little strange?
