I'll tell you how lame we are...
In this gig that I do called pastoring, it has occasionally come through in the yearly evaluations that people really seem to enjoy when I wear a tie.
So I need a few shirts that I can wear a tie with. And as I said, we got a couple, on sale.
But then we saw a beautiful tie that was on sale too. And to say its a good looking tie would be a bit of an understatement, cause it was nice.
The snag was that it cost, hold your breath now, it cost $45, on sale.
And I got caught up in the sale atmosphere and Lauralea's ooing over the tie, and telling me to get the tie, for various good reasons.
It's hard for me to type this but, I bought the tie.
The tie looks great with the shirts I got, its a real beaut. And Lauralea affirms the quality purchase, trying to talk me down from my guilty tower.
Then yesterday I think, hmm, I should look at Sears or some other place, maybe I could get a few other ties for the price of that one tie.
And she's all, "I love this tie, it's beautiful, you'll look like a million dollars..."
And I'm like, "I can't wear this with a guilty conscience!!"
So she went with me today and I bought 4 ties for the same price as the one, and I feel better about it.
Then she who needs some kind of underneath the sweater garments, finds a deal, three slips for the price of two.
And I'm all, "Get three, it's a sweet deal and good quality items!"
And she's like, "But it's $40 for three slips, thats way too much money for three slips!!"
And I'm like "Well you can dish it out but you sure can't take it!"
Which she can't.
We bought the slips too.
Sheesh, how lame are we?
