My son has a book by Hergé, "The Blue Lotus" that was paid for in whole
by my brother. My son now owns this book even though he did not pay for it
because it was given to him as a birthday gift. Even though he owns the
book, he will still tell people that my brother got it for him because
that's the polite thing to do.
