Jane Goodall and the Shopping Habits of (Some)Men

I remember one Christmas Eve receiving from my husband - then boyfriend - a battery operated stuffed gorilla that played a Christmas song while beating on its chest. The toy was wrapped in a brown paper bag that looked like it may have contained french fries at one time. I have a feeling it was purchased earlier that afternoon at the L Street Tavern – back in the day when it was better known as Striggie's than as the set for the movie Good Will Hunting. The fact that this odd gift was accompanied by a beautiful ruby and diamond ring salvaged the holiday (and my relationship) but quickly gave me insight into the gift buying practices of men and how they love waiting 'til the eleventh hour to shop. With that research in mind I invite you to pass this on.
