What a coincidence! I just had this happen, not quite in the same way. I have a Kindle Fire, the original one, and I am considering getting the new one that has it's own internet connection (doesn't need a hot spot or wireless, more like a phone). My son texted me before Christmas asking if I got the new Kindle yet? I said no, maybe when I get my bonus in January. Then a few days later my daughter asked me the same question.
Now that had me wondering what was going on. Since I had given my daughter a Kindle Fire last Christmas, actually both daughters and my son's fiance, the only reason I could think of that they would be asking that is if they were considering getting it for me for Christmas. I didn't want them to get that but, how was I going to nip that in the bud when it was an assumption, and presumptious, on my part?
I finally asked my daughter why they both asked me that? She said that they were thinking of getting their niece, my granddaughter, a Kindle and wanted to know if I had got a new one and was going to give the old one to granddaughter. Ha! That was a relief and I told her yes, I probably would be giving it to her since everyone else already had one.
