The Usual Scenario:
If you’re anything like me, whenever Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or any other special occasion rolls around, you have no clue what kind of awesome gift to buy for your special guy.
So you would ask him to tell you what he wants and he’d always say,
You: “So, Honey, what do you want for (insert your special occasion here)?”
Him: “Oh stop, Hun! You don’t have to get me anything. Just a kind word will do.”
Man, Boy, or Both
But of course, you being
the clever girl you are, know better than this load of hooey he is trying to feed you, yet again. 😉
Openly, he may tell you that he doesn’t want anything.
But secretly, he wishes that you would just follow his (not so) subtle cues already and buy him that ridiculously expensive lightsaber thing that, to you, looks like an over-glorified toy for overgrown boys.
But to him, checks off every childhood dream he’s ever had about being a real-life Jedi (who now happens to be happily married with kids.)
Doh! Face Palm:
