Sshh Don't Tell

I have a best friend named April. She is a great person and an even better friend. She was one of the first friends I made when I moved to SoCal. Now that I'm back in Salinas it's hard to keep in touch but even when I don't talk to her she is always in my heart.

April is what you would call...hmm how do I put this... a little different. You never know what she will be wearing, what her shoes will look like, what her hair will look like. She has a style all of her own. She's brave and not afraid to try anything. I often wish I could be more like her as I sat with my all black outfit and plain black sandals.

A few years ago April started collecting Flamingos. She has flamingo EVERYTHING. A few days ago I was at the Salvation Army and saw this for a dollar:

Not exactly April's style but the flamingos were adorable and I figured she could do something with it. At least that was my plan. But as I was listing items today I realized I could sell this on eBay. So I'm ashamed to admit it but I listed it. If it doesn't sell I will send it to April. But I do feel guilty for trying to sell a gift I bought for her. 

Am I the only one who has ever done this? Bought something for a gift but ended up selling it on eBay? I hope not. Hopefully she will never know.
