SO I'M ON THE BUS, AND MY ROOMMATE TEXTS ME THAT MY LIST APP SECRET SANTA PACKAGE HAS ARRIVED ✨

  1. This is what he says:
  2. Yes! Yessssssssss.
    Should I wait until Christmas? No.
  3. I enter my apartment. This is what I see.
    (That's @avocadont on the right.)
  4. 👀
  5. 👀
  6. 👀
  7. It's from Yonkers.
    Reasons that's cool: 1. Setting of "Show Me a Hero," one of my fave shows this year 2. Up there with Albuquerque & Kalamazoo on the Funnest City Names To Pronounce list 3. New York is cool
  8. I open it. Inside are:
  9. A tiny mug...
    Yes! I only sort of like coffee. This mug will hold the exact amount of coffee I desire.
  10. ...that's wrapped in bags from a store I've never heard of, but where, apparently, you get more for your dollar
  11. This book about happiness
    "I enjoy psych-based, non-fictional books on emotional intelligence, creativity, etc.," my secret Santa wrote in the card (which I'll get to).
  12. Bonbons
    Enough said.
  13. An Upright Citizens Brigade sticker
    ...because my secret Santa has recently gotten into improv (which is SO cool). I love playing improv games with my friends from my hometown—but I've never tried in front of an audience before.
  14. And the nicest card explaining each item
    ...in list form, of course
  15. I discover that my secret Santa is Kristin Nalivaika
    Hi, @nalivodka! Thanks for the gifts! They're perfect 😊. So fun to get a peek into your life. Totally made my week. A very merry Christmas to you!
  16. Oh, and...
    Many, many thanks to @ChrisK (a god among men!) for taking on this wonderful project.
