(Real conversation with co-worker, I kid not!)
Me: "I'm trying to think of new, cool things to send my sponsored child in El Salvador, what do you send, S? I need ideas that fit in an envelope."
S: "I don't do it anymore. It was too expensive. After M and I separated I had to buy a new car, all new furniture, dining set, and the condo. Bed, Bath, and Beyond ain't exactly cheap, you know!"
To make it even weirder, the nearest BB&B is a three-hour drive away!
