I was just trolling Amazon for a Chris Botti CD* for my Dad for Giftmas, and clicked through to the reviews. One of them caught my eye: "Chris Botti probably couldn't disappoint me too easily. But this is plain and simply good stuff."
I was thinking, "Heh. That sounds like something my Dad would say." Then I looked at the reviewer's screen name: "Larry C." And I was like, no way -- that can't be my Larry C. Right? Right?? Clicked through to the profile. First review is for a solitaire game I helped my Dad pick out. The only thing on his wish list is a pair of suspenders. Yep. It's my Larry C., all right.
At least I know not to get him this particular CD! Although it's good to know my gifting instinct was pretty good.
*It's not weird to get your Dad a slow jams, easy jazz CD if he is A) a trumpeter himself, and B) he asked for it. Okay?
