Ever have one of those moments where someone gives you something and you scramble to find something to give to them and return the favor?
We just had such a thing happen here at the house. My roommate, who works at a tv studio and occasionally gets tickets to sporting events, etc, got a friend some tickets. Maybe to the Giants, maybe to the Yankees, I don’t remember. I just know it was tickets to some New York team (which in my book is completely unacceptable).
The friend appreciated the gift and strove to return the favor. What did he come up with to give to JImmy? A porn video. Yes you read that right. A porn video. What in the……??? I mean, what happened to just writing a quick thank-you note?!? It wasn’t even a joke either – you know the friend who always gets the gag gifts? This wasn’t like that. This was a legitimate present.
I am trying not to overreact, because I’m sure he meant well. But I am definitely uncomfortable with this. Even Jimmy was uncomfortable with this. Those of you who follow this blog know that I have been praying hard for spiritual breatkthrough for Jimmy in this area. The house is full of old porn videos, sexy calendars, etc. Some he’s been moved to get rid of since I’ve been here. It’s been a lot of work and a lot of prayer and I am trying not to view this latest present as a setback. We will see!!
