    "Peek" Might be an Understatement

    I would unwrap everything, try on, play with and carefully rehearse reactions in advance. And I still do :). If the thing isn't so great, I practice acting the right amount of happy. If it's just what I always wanted, I gotta have the perfect surprised look ready to go. The thing...
