Philp and jbk:
Youguys are very accuarate in your assumptions about cost!
However, I too used to have a wife (now thankfully EX) that kept score on those kinds of things. At the time I owned and raced a NHRA Pro Stock car, so you can only imagine how much she had to add up on my side! It turns out that everything was some sort of "get even because..." thing. Hmmmm, isn't that interesting.
My point is, I now have someone that appreciates anything and everthing she has or that is given to her, regardless of cost! I know, how can it be, you say? It can happen. It is rare, but it can happen.
Just like the diamonds some women are so fond of, the high quality ones are rare, but worth so much more in the long run.
Just my .02 carats worth.

Terrie P – That is so funny, you think just like my wife.

Ron P - Dude, I am so sorry about this weekend. My fault, I owe you one.

p.s. Mental note - never let my wife hang with jawbreaker's wife!

Ladies, can we talk seriously for a minute. I’m asking for help (visualize a pathetic face staring at you). I realize your ultimate loyalty is to the Sorority, but possibly there is a little loyalty left for the Fraternity that has so warmly embraced you here at OSO (no double entendre intended). What’s next? I was thinking it might be redecorating a few rooms. Her friend hired some guy named Alfrado (sp?) and redid their entire downstairs. Do you think that might be next? If so, how do I head it off, or at least, soften the blow.

BCC – I might have gotten one of the four wrong, but not the fifth!

No problem UT, I just swiped your Amex number out of the central computer banks. I'll make sure she keeps it under 5K.

True Story

My buddy decided to put a Whipple on his 271 Formula and surprise the Wife when he was done. It was a suprise to him when she verbally beat him to death for spending all that money without her approval. Then he found out that for safety sake he better put external steering on the boat (more verbal abuse from wife but at least there both safe) Then the drive lets loose less than 6 weeks after whipple install, so on goes the Teague XR drive.

Since then he has purchased for the Wife

1 Rolex Watch
5k in artwork for the house
new dining and living room furniture as well as exersize equipment.

And now whenever they argue, you guessed it, the Formula comes out of the hat

Some upgrade huh
