I’ve actually got a reverse version.
In December, all manner of stuff was on sale, but not the Spandex Jack Skellington pillow thing that I decided to buy DW for Christmas.
$20 later, we’re in Days of Christmas and DW comes and has one in her hands for only $5.
So here I am, having to telegraph a Christmas present and tell her flat out that she couldn’t buy it and don’t ask another question about it.
It’s all timing, and sometimes you get bit on the butt.
Just like the 50th anniversary HO train set that was only available for a limited time that I thought would be available longer than it was.
