So the Boy is looking at a women’s clothing magazine (the Girl’s favorite), and the Girl… well, she kind of laughs.
What are you doing?
Actually, I’m just wondering what you might like in here.
Oooooooh, interesting! Like, gift-potential?
Alright. Well, I need to finish something real quick. How ’bout you go through and mark what you THINK I’d like and I’ll tell you if you’re right. It’ll be like a Get to Know Your Spouse exercise.
And the Boy agrees.
Fifteen minutes later, the Girl joins the Boy again and does a little gleeful clap in anticipation.
the boy opens the magazine to the middle and proceeds to the end
he is remarkably on-target
Now why, the Girl asks, why did you start in the middle? Is that just where I caught you? Should we do the beginning now?
and the Boy looks a little puzzled and says
Naw. The beginning is all work-out gear.
*the Girl tilts her head ever so slightly*
Work-out gear… like, running and stuff. I guess I just thought you… wouldn’t… be… interested? But you are. Let’s start over.
Apple Pie, Anyone? I’m serving up double-portions today.

Same thing happened to me with an “Athletica” catalog. I have no idea why it came to our house. My wife was like,
“Why are you throwing that away?”
“Um…I didn’t think you’d be interes…..um…no reason. You’re pretty. I’m sorry.”
Good luck with marriage.

Best comment ever. You’re pretty. I’m sorry.

Once upon a time, there was a girl who excitedly tried on a pair of brand new Gap jeans for her boyfriend. Upon twirling to offer the full 360 view for his appreciation, she was rewarded with the following comment: “So, are those like, the Goal Pants?” And then I murdered him.

WHAT?! Is your computer mad at my computer? They are so fickle.

Hmmm, shall we look at the bright side? I think Pollyanna would say that for heaven’s sake, the man wanted to give you a gift! And, he rightly picked out half the catalog! Holy smokes, let’s give him a medal. (Can you tell I’m trying to get on Curt’s good side so you can come visit me in AZ??? Is it working???)
