"Sex and the City, the complete series deluxe boxed set. My mother didn't want to get me this gay-looking gift and put it under the tree. 'What would Dad say?' she kept asking. She offered alternatives, like the individual seasons, but I didn't want those ugly, half-assed versions in the acetate sleeves—I wanted beautiful, big pink box that can barely fit on a shelf. After two years of asking, it finally showed up with the other gifts. Glorious! Santa came through! My dad didn't say a word."
