Emrie and I recently got some new neighbors so I decided we'd throw together a "welcome to the neighborhood" package and go introduce ourselves. Earlier this week I had stopped by the movie store and found this popcorn box that looked like the ones you get at the theater, except this one came ready for the microwave. We stuffed it full of candy, pop, and a gift card.
Tonight, as we were walking to their house I asked her why we were doing this. She said, "To make them happy and so that they will give us a gift." After I gained my composure, I explained that she was partially right but that it had nothing to do with getting anything in return. I think she gets it.
