I have a story like this, too. When I had my first baby, some friends sent us a present. It was in a box for an online roleplaying game, Everquest. I know the husband of that couple was addicted to Everquest, and it made sense that he'd give it to us, because we did like computer games and he'd never had kids. I said, "I can't believe they gave us this, this is the worst time for you to get hooked on an online game. Promise me you won't play this!" My husband had a history of being addicted to various computer games and obsessively playing them. [This was before the World of Warcraft existed, and it was unimaginable to me that someday i would become an online game addict]. I really believed it was Everquest, and I thought it was that husband making some point that we, esp. my husband, shd still be enjoying our own interests despite having a baby.
At some point later, we actually opened the box, and it was one of the best gifts ever, a beautiful John Lennon baby outfit with little white rats on it. At that time, I was involved in rat rescue and rat welfare volunteering, so it was extra thoughtful. We used that outfit over and over again and always enjoyed it.
