Once there was a woman who loved yarn. Every year, she asked all her friends and family to get her yarn shop certificates for Christmas. They usually did. Then one year, misguided relatives bought her a Bed, Bath & Beyond gift certificate. The card that it came in read: "We got this because we thought it might be possible to have too much yarn."
She bought yarn storage bins with it and sent them a nice note thanking them and explaining what she used the bins for.
Next year, they got her a yarn shop certificate.
