A TOAST to Understanding Wives!

Out shopping tonight, my wife and I went into a Wal-Mart.

Always on the hunt, I perused the poorly kept toy section. I think it may have been hit by a nuclear strike. Nothing was where it belonged. I found two ROTV with red clearance stickers that said 39.00 on them. PASS.

Then my wife happened upon some expansions. Four packs, all different. She said "I haven't seen these before, have you got these? It was all four wave 2 (Utgar's Rage) packs, of which I have none of. She saw my pulse quicken. I didn't even have to ask.

With a smile: "You can get them if you want."

YAY! As someone who is very slowly building a collection, such a find is a rare treat. I've NEVER seen these packs in any store around me. Woohoo!

So this thread is a TOAST to understanding wives everywhere! I raise my glass to my wonderful wife, who's not only gives me love, good food, and a happy home, but also understands the Heroscape habit, and still decides to live with me.

And hopefully this thread will send the seesaw of wifely karma over to the understanding side for the many of us who need it from time to time.

I'm glad my wife and I keep our own money.

Environmentalists make great compost.

I guess she gave you permission then? :P My wife and I don't tell each other what is ok to buy. We just get what we want and are trusting that the other would never put our family's budget in jeopardy.

My lovely 8.3 month pregnant wife agreed to play me in a match tonight, despite having to reach for everything and being tired. She's awesome, also. It didn't hurt that she whupped me, either. Grrrr....

Wytefang, your wife truly is lovely. What she sees in you we'll never know, but hey! It's all good :P . Pregnancy times were my least favorite.

Awesome wife Eckles. I don't have a wife seeing as I'm a kid. But my mom always checks when she's in a store. So does my dad.

Dan: "I'm filled with reckless desire."

Well, our financial situation is not at all in a position where we can simply "get what we want". It's a major treat to buy anything for ourselves, lately. Money has been really tight. If she hadn't been standing there, and said that, I wouldn't have gotten them at all, because I simply wouldn't have even considered it. Since she opened her mouth... I'm HOME FREE

Great, first she finally allows you to get more HeroScape and what's the first thing you do? You run off to 'Scapers and start making toasts. Next thing you know you're falling down drunk and never even allowed to play the game any more!

Just because you're offended, it doesn't make you right.

The first part of this cracked me up! I agree with the 2nd part, it's rough seeing her go through a lot of miserable stuff and the mood swings can be crazy sometimes.

Eckels, she sounds awesome. Enjoy Wave 2.

A toast to understanding cool parents?

It feels good to read about wives, girlfriends, and parents who understand the addiction. I raise my Pirate mug for a toast to them.
