The Queen Anne Test

We have a new family joke that may stand the test of time. A few years ago, Sam gave a Christmas gift to a young lady of his absolute favorite candy, a small box of Queen Anne chocolate covered cherries, (retail price, one dollar). When the sweet, but unsuspecting gal opened the gift, she was not at all impressed with it. Sam got his feelings hurt so badly that he called her an ungrateful -----, and that was the end of that!
So now, any young lady that he talks to will have to pass the Queen Anne test- showing that she is grateful for a gift, no matter how small.
