Since I got my bonus and no real useful place to invest it, I decided to treat my sister to a laptop.
Email from Me to Therese
Hey Tree, because I am in the giving mood, I’d like to buy you and your family a MacBook up to $1,000. I feel blessed that I got my bonus, that I still have a job, and that I have a boyfriend who adores me. I’m just so happy and want to share in the wealth.
I would highly recommend my own laptop which is a MacBook with a retail price of $999. You can choose to upgrade, but I will cover the first $999.
Also, if you can tell me exactly what you want, I will purchase it. Wells Fargo has a special discount with Mac and I would have to do the purchase through an internal web site.
The gift will cover me for the next year, including the following holidays and birthdays:
April – Easter
July – Benicio’s Birthday
September – Ronnie
October – Therese’s Birthday
December – Christmas
January – Dominic’s Birthday

Cat! What an extremely generous gift! Well, although I think that one grand is a steep price for a present, I would be happy to be a Mac buddy with you! And yes, of course, the Mac will cover all the big events for the next year.
So after looking at the website, the basic MacBook for $999 will be just fine. Ronnie looked at the UCSF website and his faculty discount would be $949 with free shipping. Does Wells Fargo have the same discount?
I’m happy that you are happy and we can all be happy with our happy MacBooks! I love you, Cat! I’m so glad that things are going well for you.
