*Subtitles for the benefit of those would like to translate the dialogue.

After retrieving the bowl, Zola returned to her seat then consulted her friends about the direction it should be passed around…

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -27

Zola: “Passing the bowl around clockwise is ok?” Franka: “Fine with me.” Bianca: “I’m cool with that.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -28

Zola: “Alright then. Please pick one and pass it on.” Bianca: “And let’s all play nice.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -29

Franka: “Gonna stir it up then pick one.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -30

Franka: “Hmm I got number 3.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -31

Ashante: “I have no luck with these things.” Persephone: “Me either.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -32

Dania: “Come on Ash, stop stirring and pick one.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -33

Dania: “The quicker we play this game the quicker we get to eat. I’m starving and sitting by the food isn’t helping.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -34

Ashante: “Ok ok, keep your shirt on Dania.” Persephone: “Keep your cool Ash, no squabbles between you and Dania tonight.”

 

Eventually Dania had her turn, then Cindy…

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -35

Cindy: “Well I got number one.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -36

Zola: “Good for you, that’s the best number. After we all open the gifts you get to steal anyone.” Dania: “Luck devil.” Cindy: “Oh sweet!”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -37

Zola: “After I pluck that last number you get first pickings.”

 

Zola got her number and Cindy then chose her gift.

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -39

Cindy: “I’ll just take this gift closest to me.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -40

Cindy: “Ohh it’s a very delicate glass tea set.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -41

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -42

Zola: “It would look lovely in my kitchen. He he he…”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -43

Ashante: “Cindy don’t worry about Zola. I saw her buy that tea set. If she wanted one she would have bought two.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -44-rev

Bianca: “While y’all banter about the tea set, I will take my gift.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -46

Bianca thinking: “I hope I get jewelry.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -45

Bianca scans the assortment of gifts and seeks out a small, modest sized one, which could possibly be a jewelry box.

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -47

 

However when she unfolded the tissue paper inside the box her disappointment could be felt in the room.

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -48

Bianca: “It’s a red leather clutch.” Bianca thinking: “And I have one already.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -49

Bianca: “Lovely clutch isn’t it? Feel free to steal it because I already own one.” Persephone: “Cut but I have one too. Hehehe.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -50

Bianca: “It even has a convenient handle.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -51

Bianca: “Lots of room inside.” Dania: “Thank goodness you are a doctor, ’cause you are a sad saleswoman. Hehehe.” Cindy: “Ha ha ha”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -52

Franka: “Well I’ll pass on the clutch and the tea set…”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -53

Franka: “… I’m going for that Louis Vuitton shopping bag calling my name.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -54

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -55

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -56

Franka: “Oh my oh my…”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -58

Franka: “I’m sorta afraid to take it out.” Cindy: “Come on everyone is waiting.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -57

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -59

Franka: “TA DAAA!!!!”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -60

Franka: “It’s a Louis Vuitton Graffiti Neverfull Bag circa 2009.” Cindy: “Gorgeous.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -61

Zola: “Treasure the seconds you have it in your possession.” Franka: “Thanks for the warning.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -62

Franka: “Maybe I can enjoy it a bit longer than that.” Dania: “Ahem.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -63

Franka: “Yes.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -64

Dania: “Franka, come here.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -65

Dania: “I want the bag.”

 

Ignoring the command, Franka quickly returned to her seat with the bag, but Dania was not amused…

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -66

Dania: “Why did you go and sit down? Give me the bag.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -67

Franka: “Dania if you want it come and get it.”

 

In two steps Dania stood in front of Franka, with her hand outstretched for the bag.

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -68

Dania: “Here I am. Please hand it over.”

 

And she stood there motionless for a couple minutes, waiting for Franka to comply.

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -69

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -70

Franka: “You just couldn’t stand to see me enjoy the bag could you?” Dania: “It’s nothing like that. It’s my turn after you. I’m number 4.”

 

Ignoring Dania, Franka turns to Zola for support.

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -71

Franka: “Zola you know she’s been like this since kindergarten.”

 

Gift Exchange-72-2

Zola: “Sorry Franka, that’s the game. You have to give the bag to Dania.”

 

And so she did, very reluctantly…
