How well can you hide your reaction if on your birthday, your team gifts you a set of coffee mugs, painstakingly selected by one of them, and who presents it to you with a proud expression of having picked something so right, and then when you open it, one reads ‘For my loving husband who means the world to me’ and the other ‘For my loving wife who means the world to me’. And then he says ‘I thought it would be awesome to get you something you could give your husband, and something he could give you’ with a smile. 

Apparently not too well, so much so that it is noticed by everyone around, including the one who got the gift in the first place. And so I am stuck with two mugs I can never bring myself to use. And a lot of guilt. Sigh.
