Life's Like That

The festive season being round the corner, lady and hubby gets invited for an Xmas party. It was a last minute invite with additional complications - it was a theme party (red and white) and they were supposed to take two gifts each for less than Rs.100.
In between a mad rush to get a red and white outfit for hubby, both are discussing what would be an ideal gift...Lady, being the eternal dreamer suggested candle sticks. pen holders, cute teddies and curios.
Hubby kept saying no to each idea while urging the lady to think practically and come up with a 'useful' gift idea. Lady was getting irritated by hubby's practical nature, till she had the last laugh by suggesting the most practical gift that she could think of for Rs. 100.
With a bright smile she told hubby, "Now, you can't say no to this one...Every household would need this...I've come up with this one after applying rational thought ..." And when hubby gave his nod of approval, lady presented her grand idea - "let's buy 2kgs of onions and get it gift wrapped !"

It seems your choice of gift seems to be the best this year too.. around December festive weeks...
