Well, I know she got it for me now (I have my ways...hehehehe...) and here's what I'm thinking for it.
I'm a sports NUT. All of my friends are also sports NUTS.
Here's how I figure I'm going to play it.
Me-"A.J., what's your address??"
Me-"I'm going to make a prediction about the football game tonight and mail it to you..."
Him-"Why can't you just give it to me?"
Me-"Because I don't want you to know the outcome of the game before it happens...I wouldn't want you to go using my prediction skills to your advantage to go gambling or anything. So if I send it to you, you know when I sent it and that it was before the game, but then you won't get it until after the game so you won't be able to use it to gain an upper hand on any of the other gamblers."
Him-"Alright, I live at...."
Me-"Now let's go drop this in the mailbox out front."
ah good one. i never thought of using that as the justfication.
