It’s a very good thing for Vince that I don’t expect lavish gifts. You’ll remember that during the summer, I got a lime green weed eater. In December, just 3 months after the first one, I got another lime green weed eater.
There’s a new dollar type store in town. Vince went there earlier this week. He actually knows the owner’s husband but the owner doesn’t know Vince. Vince walked in and was looking around and the owner lady asked if he needed help. He said “I’m looking for a present for my wife for Valentine’s Day.” He said she just looked at him like . . Oh, your poor wife! If only she knew! 🙂
Vince picked up a plastic 2 quart pitcher and said “How would this work?” The lady said NO! Vince said “She could make iced tea for me!” The lady still said NO!
Then Vince picked up a plastic vase and said “How would this work?” The lady was probably about ready to send him out of the store. She said “That might work if you filled it with Godiva chocolate and placed a string of pearls on top and wrapped it with a nice ribbon.” I’m surprised he didn’t ask her if she had pearls for $1.
Then he found this!
Vince said “Oh, she loves lime green! I’ll get this!” I wonder what that lady was thinking! I ought to go in there and tell the lady I’m looking for a Valentine’s gift for my husband! 🙂
Yesterday I got this email from Vince:
If you want a printer that works with the IPad I can get you one. Or would you rather have foo foo stuff.
I have been wanting an “air” printer that will work with the iPad. I wonder what Vince would say if I said “Honey, I’d rather have a 3 carat diamond ring!” My guess is he would either take off running and I’d never see him again or he’d come home and pack all my stuff and send me back to Louisiana . . so I will not ask for a diamond. All my “good” jewelry is in the safety deposit box and I never wear it so he’s pretty sure I’ll never ask for jewelry. I guess if I really had to give him a gift idea . . which I do not have to do . . I’d ask for a gift certificate to the yarn shop but we all know I need nothing from there either. So, the truth is . . the lime green dust pan is an excellent Valentine’s gift!
