You boys and your toys.
My "DH" went to North Dakota duck hunting with my son yesterday afternoon. This summer it was determined that my son needed his own 12 GA. He was ready to move up from the 20 GA. So as we're determining where to get $800 from to make such a purchase. I asked my husband if we didn't have another 12 GA filed under the King sized bed....because we are like princess and the pea...except in place of mattresses...my gun collector has mounds of gun cases and all sorts of guns under the bed. So you have the picture. I just couldn't understand why we would need another 12 GA in the house when I should wonder if there wasn't another one here that would suffice. Because with that mound under us...certainly there wouldn't just be one 12 GA. It's like just having one phillips screwdriver for a construction worker....right? Not going to happen....
Nope Nope Nope...he needs a 12 GA. We don't have a 12 GA that he could use.
So the packing and loading of the truck happens Tuesday night. His friend stops over and I hear their conversation outside. Yeah bringing a 3rd gun just in case one gets locked up on us or seized or whatever the right term is for malfunctioning shotgun. He comes in for another load. I say, " Is that a 3rd 12 GA?! I though we didn't have another 12 GA that DS could use?! "
"He can't! It's not right for him." What?~!
Needless to say I feel buffaloed and lied to by a gun fiend in the form of my nutso husband. We women are onto you..... I should have trusted my gut instinct earlier this summer. As it turned out DS wanted a gun to call his own and he has saved birthday and Christmas money for 13 years of his life and was able to purchase something that fit him and that no doubt will last him his whole life if he takes care of it. But I don't like the round about words DH has fanagled things. He's something else.
Busted! haha yeah i know better than trying that move :) As i tell my friends when they are trying to peer pressure me to do something that i know i should clear with DW first "My couch isnt THAT comfortable hahaha I love my DW too much to blatantly do something that I know will make her mad. I talk a big game on here for chuckles because I know she isnt reading Im really just a big pushover who knows who the real boss is haha
Now... that isnt to say i wont try and pull in some questionable evidence, such as 'needing to protect the flock' when i build my case to convince her that I should buy this shotgun for example lol
