Oh, Squatty Potty...How I Adore You
I participated in the Reddit Secret Santa gift exchange this past Christmas season and was matched with a woman in western Massachussets who was a foodie/cook. I bought her the Flavor Bible based on her profile.
My Secret Santa had sent me a note before Christmas saying that my gift was delayed because it was on backorder. I waited and waited and waited. In fact, Reddit bugged me to mark my gift as 'not received' because I think they wanted to close down the exchange and re-match folks. But...my Santa was persistent. At first, I thought I was getting scammed. That...this dude was just emailing me to cover his rear in the Reddit system but that I was going to get shut out. But...what was in it for him? He could have just used (as I did) a throw-away account and moved on.
He emailed me a few times saying that things were on their way and then last week, he finally delivered a UPS tracking number. So...he was legit. My Secret Santa gift was on the way.
When it arrived, I was shocked. I opened it and guess what? A Squatty Potty! Yes. A Squatty Potty. Natalie has forbid me from getting one on my own. She thinks that they're just plain gross. And...they kinda are?
But..being a loyal Howard Stern listener, I couldn't sit back and listen to him everyday talking about how he uses the Squatty Potty without wanting to try one. Now, I can. And it was spectacular.
Don't believe me? Check out this Amazon review for one guy's take.
So...you're probably wondering how my Secret Santa knew to give me a Squatty Potty? I did too. I was genuinely puzzled that this stranger picked out something that I wanted. Then...I went back into my profile and there it was. I mentioned it. Guess it wasn't that hard to figure out what I would have liked to get!
Thanks Secret Santa. Thanks, Reddit!
