It must be love

A sample of today's conversation:

Me: "I almost bought you a present today"

Mrs RS: "But you didn't?"

Me: "No, I've learnt my lesson enough to make sure it fits first."

My brain: "Hah, cunningly throwing the scent off towards clothing or lingerie. She'll never guess I was going to buy jewelry."

Mrs RS: "Was it a ring?"

My brain: "What. The. Fuck....?"

Me: "Not necessarily. Why?"

Mrs RS: "Was it going to have a diamond?"

My brain: "Defcon 3! Defcon 3! Defcon 3!"

Me: "Hah! Like I can afford a diamond!?!"

Mrs RS: "Was it an engagement ring?"

My brain: "Defcon 1! Defcon 1! Defcon 1!"

Me: "No."

Mrs RS: "Good."

Late edit:

Couldn't miss this off the end though!

It's a bit late for a ring if her name is Mrs Red Squirrel. You're lucky to have a woman who is satisfied with a title.

Why don't you get her a nice "toy" instead? Far more practical than jewelery!

A bag of chocolate mis-shapes often suffices.

Haha finally someone gets their comeuppance for the whole secret gift baiting thing...

Red Squirrel said...

gb - and satisfied she is :)

P - good point! Monopoly always goes down well at Christmas :)

Kevin - I did actually take 48 Curly-Wurlies on our first date :-P

Lindsay - Mrs Red Squirrel loves talking about her presents almost as much as she likes receiving them :)
