What do Dwight Schrute and Poo Have in Common??


Nothing. Everything. I have two Christmas parties that I look forward to every year. The first is a party with our friends. We get together with our spouses, have dinner and exchange white elephant gifts. The second is a party with my husband's family (just the adults) where we have dinner and exchange white elephant gifts. I always have a blast at both of these parties. This year was no exception. That is where Dwight Schrute comes in. I love The Office. I watch it religiously. I watch the re-runs religiously. I have The Office theme song as the ringtone on my cell. I just can't get enough. You can imagine my extreme joy when I opened my white elephant gift from Casey and Corbin to discover a Dwight Schrute bobblehead! I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I could not believe that I got the Dwight doll. I was so worried someone would steal it from me (and they did). But Dwight was destined to be mine and he did make it home with me.


The second party (with my husband's family - adults only) we exchanged white elephant gifts as well. I got Auntie Les' gift. She is known for her practical jokes, so I knew her gift would be good. I open it up, and it is a book called "What's your Poo Telling You?" It is the most hilarious book I have ever seen. I could not part with it. Luckily, no one stole it and it made it home with me. So now the answer to the question, what do Dwight Schrute and Poo have in common? The answer - they are both the best white elephant gifts I have ever received! They are displayed proudly on my desk in my home office. Watch out for next year - I have already found a great gift. I guess you'll just have to wait to see what it is.
