Matt ordered a Blue Mystic rapture and wrote back "that is one nice kaleidoscope... i wish i could keep it for myself. i must have spent 3 hours looking into it last night... i have had a nice time teasing her with what the Christmas gift could be (recall she had a $5 one and she had told me that she always looked at kaleidoscopes when she was a kid). she thinks the gift is anything from a soccer ball to having something to do with her height... i have been very misleading AND she cant wait - so i am letting her pick have the gift tonight... hahaha. i know where to get my next kaleidoscope, but it wont be for awhile. thanks happy holidays!"
