That was unexpected

I have worked at the clinic for 8 1/2 years. In that time, we have never gotten Christmas gifts from my boss. Not that I ever expected one or felt I deserved one--I'm happy to have a job and a boss that says thank you now and then.

And then today my boss walks around handing out gift bags. My coworker and I looked at each other and immediately looked at what we got, looked at each other, and were flabbergasted.

200$ gift cards to Amazon.

A mug I would have expected given how coffee & tea addicted we all are or a small bag of Lindt or Ghiradelli since we're also chocolate addicted. Hell, 50$ for us to use buying a pair of scrubs. But 200$? He was hugged by everyone and thanked profusely, of course, and it was a wonderful surprise after a long day where we didn't leave until more than an hour after closing time.

Now I'm sitting in bed, tired but not enough to sleep which is a problem given how I need to be awake in a few hours to fly, and staring at my Amazon wishlists.
