Going by the principle “I’ll believe it when I’ll see it”, it’s normal that you would never think that things that are right before your very eyes are something completely different.

Yeah, money can buy cool things, but guess what: almost every year I make my own gifts for my girlfriend (but I always have to buy something else anyway).
