"I had a big, heavy present waiting for me to open for Valentine's Day, and I immediately thought it was an Isabel Bloom figurine, as I had recently taken an interest in collecting them. I put the present on the scale, and then thumbed through the catalog, trying to guess which one he had bought me, based on the weight. Nothing matched up, so I was extra-excited, imagining he had bought me two! When I finally opened the package, I discovered he had bought me… a sewing machine. I do not sew. Never once have I mentioned that I wanted to sew. Unbelievable." -- Mary Beth
