When I was 9, I heard about a white elephant gift exchange for the first time. My friend’s Mom was having one. I no longer believed in Santa, but for about two weeks of my life, I sincerely believed my friend was about to receive a small, white elephant as a pet.
And because I was over there all the time, I was about to receive a small, white elephant as a pet.
I was so very excited.
I still enjoy white elephant gift exchanges, but this one had the cutest expectations.
