My husband was out of town and I was watching a tool program on one of the shop at home television shows. The next morning I checked my email and found ten order confirmations. I realized I must have been missing him a lot. But since Christmas was just a few weeks away I justified my impulsiveness as early shopping. The following week he was home when the delivery truck arrived with all these packages. I quickly explained to him that they were all for him for Christmas. Telling him of my evening of entertainment with the shopping network buying tools. He very gently informed me that a woman buying a man tools was like a man buying a woman underwear. “They seldom fit”, He said.
I laughed and replied that since I had a fondness for gadgets, I would simply take what he didn’t want and put in my tool box. I thought I noticed him wince as he agreed.
Christmas morning I proudly presented him with this pile of presents all festively wrapped. He unwrapped and examined each one handing me the ones he did not want. I ended up with eight of the ten in my pile.
Then he handed me an envelope. Inside was a crisp $100. dollar bill. With a note saying; “FOR UNDERWEAR”
I will not be buying my husband any tools 😉
