Hubby got his Christmas presants already.
I ordered them, but one came to the house: 3 pairs of biballs...
and the other was shipped to the store and was ready to be picked up. A 32" LCD
A step up from this 20" box tv. (not a great pic but really, how many people take a pic of their tv's?)
We already had to go to town to meet the girl from Freecycle. (I will post about that tomorrow.) While waiting for 3pm to come around, I checked my emails. Perfect timing, his presant is ready. I really did want to save it for Christmas, but this would be my only chance into the city for about two more weeks. They would have sent it back by then.
Hubby had been watching the Mad Max trilogy and as we were about to leave, he is even peeking in at the tv through the crack of the closing door. He says, Why am I going? You can do this yourself! Do I really have to go? I had already told him his presant (not what it was) was waiting to get picked up! At the word "Presant", I am soo there! He puzzles me sometimes, Mad Max is more important than a presant. I think to myself, Hmmm...Mel Gibson on a 32" would be so much better!
If I had known that the newer tv's were so light I would have gone by myself. I figured they were just as heavy as the tv we had or even more, since it was bigger. I thought I was going to need his help.
We stop to get gas and I signal to him that I'm going to walk to the store, meet me over there.
He...No that is a long walk and the traffic is getting heavy.
Good point but daggummit I'm so excited!
Me...I'm more excited about your presant, than you are.
He..well if you will tell me what it is, maybe I would be too.
Me..I give in and show him on the reciept what it says
Now that got him, pace picks up and nothing but grins!
I had to reign him in, there for a moment. The very first tv he saw in the store was this gigantic, monster of a tv (I don't even think we have a wall that big). His eyes looked like they were going to pop out of his head! I had to inform him that that is NOT it. Very sad moment, but it didn't last long. They rolled out HIS tv and he stood there looking at the box in the most loving way...I think I should have been jealous!
His final comment after getting it set up:
The race sunday is going to be AWESOME!!!!
AND he is still grinning!
