Re: Gift

When a PS3 just isn't in the cards

Try to be impartial, and ask yourself, does your child deserve the PlayStation3? How good does a kid have to be to earn a graphics-rendering god while at the same time putting you in the war zone that is Best Buy? Let's assume you're not Pollyanna's parent but still worry that your gift-grubbers might be spending too much time outside with friends. Kill two birds with this selection of stones, and give a well-earned gift while offering up a friendly reminder that, "I love you, but you can always do better."
