There was once a Christmas that we shared with our aunts and uncles. Like most family gatherings - there was a ton of appetizers and food laid of for everyone to munch on until the big meal was ready. My Uncle Jim made the mistake of eating all of the black olives before I had a chance to grab any. I threw an absolute fit about it leading my uncle to - for YEARS afterward - always bring me a can of black olives. The gift for me wrapped and under the tree was - yes - a can of black olives for many years. It was silly, maybe a little embarassing, but I was always really glad that I got to eat the whole can myself.

This one? This one is all mine.
