so the conversation went a little something like this...
mommy, what are we doing today?
(we are going to buy daddy's christmas present. we're going to get him a tie.)
no. let's get him a chainsaw.
(i don't think daddy needs, or wants, a chainsaw.)
yes. he does.
(i really don't think so.)
...this goes on for sometime until i suggest we call daddy and ask him.
that conversation went a little something like this:
hello sweetheart. g and i are going christmas shopping for you and he is insisting that we get you a chainsaw. will you please tell him that you don't need, or want, a chainsaw.
(well...a small chainsaw would be kind of cool.)
at which point i tell G that daddy apparently, to my surprise, would like a chainsaw.
i told you.
guess what daddy got for Christmas?
(note: it is now May 9th and the chainsaw is still in the box...i'm just saying, he would have worn the tie by now.)
