  35. My most memorable gift?
    I would have to characterize my most memorable gift as my most useful gift which was an IBM Selectric typewriter that I got for my high school graduation in 1967. I used it the following year and a half to support me in college, typing papers for professors and dissertations for graduate students. I left it behind when I sailed to the South Pacific for seven years (carrying instead a portable Olivetti) but I reunited with it when I returned and started my “career” transcribing court trials. I eventually had to switch to an electric typewriter when my typing speed had gotten so fast that I was jamming the Selectric. Then in 1987 I bought my first computer, a monster machine that had 20 megabytes (I kid you not) of hard drive for the sum of $3,750. Now, 36 years later, I enjoy a sweet little laptop with 500 gigs of a solid state drive computing engine under the hood.
    There are actually very few other gifts given to me in the past that have remained in my memory. One of the few I remember was in 1958, my brothers and I each got a box radio and we all three got our first pair of snow skis. From my childhood years, those are the only gifts I remember receiving from anybody, though I know gifts were exchanged at Christmas and given on birthdays. They apparently were not very memorable.
    I do have a few recent gifts given to me from my adult children: a red-and-white long striped fleece nightgown; a beautiful Holly Yashi bracelet; and giant two-foot-long cement footprints pads, with colorful ceramic toes, placed at the entrance to my home. These are things I see daily, and the gift that remains is in the thoughtfulness of my children and the love imbued in each.

  38. Choosing anything to label as “the best” or “most memorable” or “the greatest” is difficult. The answer to my most memorable gift would’ve been different last year, ten years ago, twenty years ago, or forty years ago, and if I wrote about any of those gifts, it wouldn’t mean the others were less memorable. So, I’ve decided to write about my most recent memorable gift for a couple of reasons. One, it’s recent, so I remember more details, and two, because, well, it’s memorable.

    In December my youngest two grandchildren, Evan and Charlie, came for a sleepover. When they arrived, I opened the overhead door to let them in the garage. Charlie, the four year old, stood in front of me clutching the top of a sandwich baggie in his fists. His dad and grandpa talked to each other, Evan talked to everyone, and Charlie talked to me, keeping a firm grip on his baggie. But his voice is small, and his C’s come out as W’s, and sometimes he drops his S’s. My ears have trouble distinguishing between M’s and N’s and B’s and D’s. Sometimes in a room of crowded voices, it’s hard for my ears to decipher Charlie’s words. But I figured he was talking about a snack in the baggie, so I patted his head and said, “That’s nice.” I told him to go inside and take his jacket and boots off. Charlie smiled big, and went into the house.

    My son looked at me. He knew I hadn’t heard a word Charlie said because I had that look on my face. The look of someone pretending she has heard. “You know,” my son said, “Charlie filled that baggie with warm air from the car. He wants to give it to you for your house.”

    I did not know. I had not heard. I followed Charlie into the basement.

    “Charlie, you brought me some warm air. Thank you so much.”

    “Yeah!” Charlie cooed, smiling even bigger, firmly holding the baggie, making sure none of the air escaped while he shook off his boots one at a time. I offered to hold the baggie of air while he took off his jacket.

    I handed the air back to Charlie. “Let’s go upstairs, and you can set the warm air free.”

    In the living room, he placed the baggie on the coffee table, opened it, and let the warm air loose. I opened my arms wide. “Can you feel all that nice warm air?”

    “Yes, I can,” Charlie said, opening his arms wide, lifting his fingers up toward the ceiling to feel the warmth of his gift, his face filling with the joy of giving his nana such a fine present.
