To reason away

I'll start with the most pleasant of Christmas memories for this year. My husband told me that his siblings would not be exchanging gifts this year. I purchased some delectables to at least have something to share, but nothing extravagant. When his sisters (4) and brother finished handing us our gifts, I thought to myself, perhaps Eamon was confused and meant to say, "hey, let's go to my sister's house so I can make you look like a complete asshole." Which would have indeed been the case, because I do.
Does his giving me a copy of Billy Jack make up for that horrific error? I'm on the fence. I lean in the direction of forgiveness, because he knows that the movie was one that shaped so many of my choices when I was 9; Clothes, martial art instructional choice, wishing to be a noble Native American. It was the movie that let me know, I too could be a peaceful outsider, but when someone goes past that line.....
