A present that did not hit the mark.
December 29, 2015 3:53am CST
I gave two of my friends heat bags which I made for them for Christmas. The first friend said that she appreciated the thought but did not have a microwave to heat it in! I rang the second one, feeling apprehensive. however she did have a microwave and she loved the bag. I'm going to suggest that my friend who does not have a mw returns the bag as it is of no use to her. she has a soft spot for my jewelry making efforts so I am now making a replacement present in the form of some nice blue earrings which will match her eyes.

I would appreciate a heat bag even though I have a bunch of them because eventually they wear or burn out. I'd also appreciate jewelry too. One question though, can the "heat" bags also be frozen. I have some that can be heated or cooled and keep those ones in the freezer to use when I have a bad headache.

She didn't spell it out she said she could warm it up on the radiator! I knew that wouldn't work. In the past she has given me old necklaces that she no longer wears and I have returned the beads as earrings, and she loves them. so I know she will like the replacement gift.

I've noticed that everyone thinks we all have microwaves, I don't have one because I don't like the idea that it could be harmful. Yeah, I'm a PC kinda geeky person but I still think anything that heats food without the use of a stove or fire can't be healthy, like those early cells phones they say caused brain tumors.

It's nice to know that despite that, you guys were able to work on the gift thing. I don't know if I have her heart and courage to tell my friend that I cannot use her gift to me, but wouldn't it be insulting to her if I lie to her? I know this will be my struggle. I hate offending friends, but I also hate to cover it with a lie.
