We are not one of those nice families who, during the holidays, refuse all gifts and instead give to charity. (We give to charity too but not in lieu of gifts.) I admit it, we basically require shallow material things (and booze!) to have a good time at Christmas. We also don't like to add stress to our lives so we've agreed to submit wish lists to make things easy. While perusing my husband's submission a few years back, I was surprised to find a remote control helicopter among the other items he desired. (Why this surprised me is an even bigger mystery given that Chinese throwing stars also appeared.) In any case, I read today that over the weekend Lady Gaga flew out on stage in a white helicopter dress. This caused me to ruminate on whether I should steal a page from my husband's play book and add this item to my Christmas wish list. Perhaps it comes in red?
