My mother loves to buy me stuff that I don't like. I try to hide my dislike, but I think she senses my disappointment because she'll launch into a sales pitch to convince me it's a good gift.

"These ill-fitting elastic waisted jeans adorned with sequins and rhinestones that I picked up at Walmart in the old ladies' section go with EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING like this faux-leather, cougar-print vest that I picked up at Steinmart. And I also got you these zebra-print patent-leather boots from Big Lots to make the outfit complete. YOU ARE GOING TO BE SHARP, GIRL."

I know she knows these gifts don't bowl me over with excitement. But every year it is the same.
