Margot the frugal gestapo Christmas version vent. Wrapping gifts for kids. Scaps of unused Christmas paper litter floor. Take out trash can and Margot goes bugged eyed.

"You throwing out that perfectly good paper?"

"Yep," and the nasty look #1 comes from wife.

"But it still is good," Margot says.

"Yes, I know, but have already wrapped all buttons and coal for this year, " I say and receive nasty look #2 from wife.

"HMMFFFF," she sighs in exasperation. "You can use these scraps for cards or decorations."

"Or for confetti," I interrupt as I begin tearing the scraps into small pieces. Wife gives look #3 so the couch it is tonight.

"Oh, don't do that!!" she says gathering up all remaining scraps.

"You need confetti?" I ask and SHE TAKES IT.
