The expectation vortex

Should I even write something about it? Well I think I have already been sucked into the vortex of expectations ( it is an upside down vortex that keeping sucking you on to a higher level every year). For the past couple of years, I have been receiving gifts from A.. and of course, he hasn't been receiving any from me. I am a wierd non-gifter, a convenient cheapskate I guess, but I simply forget dates and therefore gifts.

So this year I made it clear that I don't want any gifts for V-Day because I don't want to be sucked into the above mentioned vortex. And as the evening nears, I find it's a lost cause. I am already in. I am sort of hoping A went ahead and got me something anyway.

Its all his fault. He better have a good gift to make up for it. :|
