  1. I couldn’t go to the party but I heard about it later. A friend received a hamster- opened a box to a small cage with a LIVE hamster- she cursed – it was a CHURCH party!! I would have thrown it across the room!! 🤣😲

  2. My daughter received a squatty potty from a friend as a wedding gift-apparently that’s her go to wedding gift. I had never even heard of it.
