how do you keep someone annoyed

... and desperate?

Easy. Show him the presents few days before his birthday.

my birthday presents so far

And don't let him figure out what are inside.

the sign

Last Christmas I got a few presents, and Laurent put the gifts out a few days before the Christmas. There was a big box that I had no idea what was inside for a week or so. Until one day I was doing my last minutes Christmas shopping, I called Laurent from the shop and told him that I figured out what was in that big box. He denied it, and when I got back home, that big box disappeared.

Somehow I had to blackmail him so he would put that box back.

Well, I guessed it right. It was the milkshaker.

Laurent told me that if I tried to touch it or shake it to figure out what are inside, those presents would disappear. How could I look at those wraps without trying to figure out the presents?

Well, unlike the young Don, I would be officially getting another year older this Saturday.

I really like that sign; I may have to copy Laurent and use it this Christmas at home.

That sign ruins the fun of gift guessing. (Well, not completely as you can still guess by the look.)

Well, at least it is not as bad as the Remote Village custom of hiding xmas or birthday presents under very large chickens or disguising them as uninteresting packages from Donkey Express.
I think Pepe is perverse for displaying them in the first place!
