The Gift - A Dialogue

I have a little something for you.
Ooh, what is it?
My love.
Oh. You shouldn’t have.
It’s nothing much, but it’s from the heart.
I don't know...
You don't like the color.
I'm just not sure if it's really me.
Well, try it on.
OK. There. Yeah, it's a little big.
That's OK, we can take it in.
It's not just that. It's not really my style.
Yeah, I can see that.
I'm sure on the right person it would be flattering.
But that person's not you.
No, it's fine. There's a gift receipt in the box. You should exchange it for something you'd like better.
I will, thanks.
Merry Christmas anyway.
You know I'm Jewish.
Right. Happy Hanukkah.
That ended last week.
Well, Happy New Year then. See in 2016.
Not if I see you first.
I said, next time maybe try a gift card.
