men are from mars....

I'm going to take you back to Mother's Day. Jake bought me a cultivator. When I asked what it was for and why he said " You are going to love this. It will save you so much time."

Skip ahead three weeks. One Saturday morning he got it out and put it together. I go out ask him to show me how it works. As he is tilling he mutters "This is crap. This will never work for what I need it to."

A week later he takes it back to Lowes, returns it and gets his money back. That was the end of that.

Now fast forward again to last Friday. I am still struggling with a gift idea for Jake. I ask him if there is anything he wants or needs? These are his words. "The cultivator that I want is on sale at C-A-L Ranch. I really need it for the job I'm working on. BUT.... I don't want that for my birthday. I'm tired of getting work stuff for gifts."

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

I'm still (sorta) smiling and shaking my head.

Yup I totally see your point!

First of all you are still owed a MD present (or the cash return?) or you are void from getting Jake a birthday present. Gotta make it even.

Maybe you should buy him a nice purse, or something like that, that you would really like.

or you could buy him an ice cream maker with a kitchen aid attachment.

And then, just to rub it in, you can constantly refer to it as "my Kitchenaid."
