Have YOU ever been one of those? Private poll, so be honest.
Wife just reminded me I DID that myself one year, when our daughters friend ended up staying over with us, TOTALLY last minute, on Christmas eve....when her parents got called away for a family emergency and they did not want to drag her...at 11 years old, into it. (her close uncle had committed suicide...it was an awful mess).
Thus, I went running out to the all night CVS and WALGREENS and ended up getting her a bucket of little nail polishes, a really cool sweat shirt, a watch and a few other nice things, and SHE was in hog heaven happy with the gifts she got. I had even bought scissors, tape and wrapping in the store, along with a bag of bows, so I could wrap everything in my car before rushing home.
Thus, it CAN be done.
