Worst Gift Ever!

It sounded like a such a good idea in my head.  Sure, it was a little out of the ordinary, but he would love it.  In retrospect, I should have just stuck to the basics when it comes to gifts for men: electronic gadgets, tools, golf balls, and ties.  Of course, in my slightly deranged head, I was following the rules and giving him a certified "guy gift" - sports equipment!

The only problem was that his gift was a set of women's golf clubs.

Yup, take a moment to absorb that one.  For his birthday, this wife of the year actually presented her husband with a set of women's golf clubs.  For some insane reason, I thought Evan might like it if I learned to golf so it would be an activity we could do together.  So I bought a set of clubs....for me.....for his present.

And as a special bonus, when he took me to a driving range to actually try to teach me how to use the blasted things, all I did was get frustrated and cuss him out. 

I'm still surprised he didn't file for divorce immediately.

Wow, right?  I know.  So for those of you out there who have given your husband tickets to "Showboat" instead of a Packers vs. Vikings game, have made the mistake of thinking SPANX make a good anniversary gift for your wife, or have given the mother of your children a parenting book on Mother's Day......rest easy.

I already hold the title for WORST GIFT EVER.

P.S.  We sold those golf clubs for $40 at our garage sale this May.  They were used once.
