So. The time has come again. I know that I end up complaining about this every year, but I’ve never actually made a Blog about it before, so this is the very first time I’m going to do it and it hopefully it’s the last because hopefully I Stumble onto the secret formula to solve this problem for ever and it never becomes an issue for me again, and all of the rest of the years of my life go smoothly at this time of year. You must know what I’m talking about? I’m talking about my spouse’s birthday! I’m talking about buying a gift for my husband that actually shows how well I understand him and his wants and needs. The problem is… That I don’t understand his wants and needs any more than I did last year, maybe even less. Last year I bought him a great cooler.
I went to Survival Cooking— this great website, with great writing, about all sorts of great camping supplies and products. I just got in the best cooler, a Yeti cooler, and he was so pleased. He was like jumping for joy. He said something about the fact that I keep your beer cold for like 36 hours or something, which I think is crazy. But he needs it I guess. So now I’m like, how do I top that? And the answer is: I don’t know! I think that maybe I should buy him something a little more sentimental. He used to have this watch that he really loved, and he lost it while we were traveling a few years ago. I was searching for the best watches under 500, and I have to say that I saw a watch that looks almost identical. Doesn’t that seem like a really nice gift? I think so. I think it really does. I think I’m going to buy him the watch. I would love seeing it in our next meeting with our dear friend Dave Jenkins next week!
