Age your gifts: think like a distillery in Scotland

For as long as I can remember, I've deferred opening presents whenever possible.

That goes for letters from people I really like and things I buy for myself.

The thing is, anticipating the pleasure to come is oftimes better than the thing anticipated.

And you still get the object in the end anyway.

I like free delight.

I call this sort of behavior pathological in that it's not normal.

But I'm OK with that.

Interesting, I usually don't, but I have several bottles of scotch down in the basement that were presents from my dad. I think of him when I open the new bottle and wish he could be there to enjoy it!

That works fine for things like liquor that have infinite life. I have far too much white wine that is past its prime.
