It's the thought that counts 

We had dinner at my mother-in-law's Sunday--a birthday celebration for my sister-in-law and myself. (Mine was last week, hers is forthcoming.) Mom gave me a nice gift card for Target. But the odd thing was that she also gave me the gift receipt along with that in case I want to, um, exchange it. Weird. Not so much that she gave me the receipt, which is arguably within the realm of her behavioral norm, but rather that someone at Target gave her the gift receipt for the gift card. I'm half tempted to see if they'd really let me exchange it.
