My wife came back from work this evening and asked me, “When are you going to order some more flashlights?”
I swear, you could’a knocked me over with a feather 0:)
(Usually it’s comments like, “What… not another flashlight again?”)
So what gives?
Apparently she’s really impressed by my new Tank007 E09 which I wrote about on this forum. She thinks it’s really cute and would like me to order a few more. She wants to give them away as presents to a few of her close friends. Boy… I’ve been through quite a few lights but I never got this reaction before.
Just goes to show you never can tell….
Danger, Danger. Hold onto your wallet. There is probably something she is wanting to buy. Makes it easier for her to bring it up if she sees you have spent money on more lights lately. It has taken me years of marrage to two different women to learn this. In fact, I have used this trick/method in reverse on more than a few occasions. Worked like a charm with two of my latest lights. TK75 and EA4. When they go out and buy things they want, it’s like putting money in the bank for a light you may be wanting soon. In fact, after her latest shopping spree, I already have over $100 stored up for my next wanted but unneeded light. Problem is, I can’t decide which one to get. Problems, problems, problems.
Yep, sounds like you’re in trouble and there’s a shopping storm headed your way.
Mine was pretty upset with me about the cost of my custom Ti light. I just paid for it yesterday out of my business account and she was all “goody goody, it didn’t come out of our checking account. Thats ok” So now I’m wondering which direction the storm will come from and just how bad it will be. ( a good gauge of the strength of my own impending storm is the value of my custom light…$500)
And when you consider the facts….My daughter just got a $600 prom dress that will be worn once. Don’t know what she spent on hair, nails, shoes… for one night. Then it’s gone. I’d like to see her find her way around in the dark with that pouffy dress o hers! lol
