Timing and over-the-head thought bubbles

Remember last post I told you that I wanted a puppy or camera for Christmas?

This afternoon we went to an open house for a friend that is retiring(very young) ...and who also got a puppy for Christmas ....(the lucky bastard) and when I asked him what he was going to do beside, cook, clean house and do all the laundry from now on, while his wife is at work, he told me he was going to get back in to photography.

It was just this guy, BigD and me standing there at that moment. I asked him what kind of camera he has, and we started talking about cameras, lenses etc. BigD stood there and looked at me like he had never heard before, that I want a camera. Honest to God. He just looked at me like it was all new information.

I told the friend that I am close to getting one, had been looking for deals, talking to pro's (hi Tina) and doing quality and price shopping.

So, now, when I go get my sweet ass a camera, BigD will undoubtedly say he knew all along that I wanted one. He does that. I can say something, and weeks later he "thinks" of the idea and is certain that it originated in his brain, when in fact, it was my seed that was planted.

I am fairly certain this is a male genetic trait. Many of my friends have complained about the same thing. We women make decisions, then suddenly it is a new idea in our mates brains.

Anyway, I just thought it was funny that I got to show my excitement about something that I have been wanting forever, while the man that supposedly knows me so well, stood there and was surprised.

*Can someone please explain to me why men and women are allowed to be married, when we clearly are so different? This whole g.ay marriage thing makes much more sense to me. People of common thoughts spending time together....how novel is that?

*No, I am not even remotely g.ay and am not championing a cause, just thinking out loud, though I do wonder why people are so afraid of two people loving each other...no matter who they love.

May you get the camera of your dreams very soon!

And I'll champion gay marriage. Love is love people!

You know my opinion. You should sell your GPS and use the money for a camera. :)

I LOVE my camera. Got it back in the Summer and have never regreted spending all the money on it. Even got a couple of jobs shooting family pics to help pay for it! WELL worth it!

Canon 50D!

And since he's a man, he won't get all emotional about you taking back the GPS, right?

I've been saying for about 5 years about how I want a video camera and now DH is finally talking about getting one cause now HE really wants one. So of course, we'll get one. Even when we didn't NEED a new TV, we ended up with a 42 inch flat screen.

GET THE CAMERA!

puppy....uh....they make the greatest photography subjects!

MY husband always surprises me by grabbing odd things at the grocery and saying "Well I thought you LOVED this!"

I am working up the courage to let my guy know that the GPS will be taken back and that I would like an iphone instead.
Of course my kids ( this happens all the time) feel badly for him and are afraid his feelings will be hurt.

I told them the GPS is for the family, not for me. I prefer google maps and that if they think it is so great how about they bring back some of their gifts and THEY keep the $%#* GPS!

How come I always seem the ungrateful bitch and he never comes across as the thoughtless #$%*?

I think we get married to exercise our patience muscles.
My favorite husbandism is to argue with me about something and then when it turns out that I'm right, he claims that what HE said.
It's a wonder we let as many of them live as we do.
