Yet Another Reason Why I Married Him

This is a recent conversation J and I had while shopping at Target:

Me: [Reacting like a magpie when seeing something shiny].  Look, they have one of those programmable universal remotes.  We can get rid of the three remotes lying around the living room.  And it's only 10 bucks!  I'm going to get it.

J:  The silver remote can be programmed to control the TV and the cable box, and the Xbox can't take a universal remote, so we need at least two.  And weren't you going to cancel the cable anyway?

Me: [Putting the universal remote back on the shelf] Wow, you really know how to take the wind out of the sails of an impulse buy.

Much as I hate to suggest any man go shopping, it probably IS a good idea to take J with you to Target (but please don't tell him that it was my idea - real men aren't supposed to do that to each other!)

We're pretty good at restraining each other.  He stops me from buying shiny things, more journals and unnecessary organizational items, and I keep him from buying tools and motorcycles.  (The motorcycles come up on our shopping trips more often than you  might imagine).
