My wife is awesome. She claims she sucks at coming up with gift ideas, but lately she has been giving me presents that overflows with awesome to such a degree that I’m hard-pressed to find her anything equally incredible.
Take the present I got when I woke up this morning: Guess Who? is a game she bought back when she was still a youth worker and needed ways to entertain the kids who regularly hung out at her place. It’s basically twenty questions. Each person picks a card with a character on it and then you take turns asking each other yes/no questions to try and figure out who is on the other person’s card before they can figure out yours. It’s the coolest present ever!
Oh, I should probably mention that the wife did make one modification. She illustrated new cards for the game, depicting characters from, you guessed it, Doctor Who. So now instead of Guess Who? we can play Doctor Who?
It’s so cool that my wife can do this. Not only does she geek out about stuff like this with me, but she makes me my very own, one-of-a-kind merchandise that you’ll never find on Amazon. If you’ve been here a while you’ll also remember the TARDIS twinky that was my birthday cake two years ago, the TARDIS shoulder bag I got this past Christmas, and my Doctor Who and Batman Valentine’s cards.
And when she came home from school this afternoon she had another surprise:
I also got all the Indiana Jones films on DVD. Yes, I said all. Like many other fans of the franchise I deny the existence of that fourth one that doesn’t exist. It’s movie night tonight. Shame she has to work tomorrow, otherwise we could have made it a marathon.
But back to my game…I think I should tell the wife I need a Star Wars set as well, just to prevent it from getting boring. And a Marvel/DC Superheroes set…and Lord of the Rings…and…OOOH! A Discworld set. Yes! That’s a great idea…
