My husband has this habit of telling people what they need. It's not unusual to hear him start a sentence...
"You know what you need..."
I've been hearing this plenty of times lately. He claims I now "NEED" an ipad. Hmmmm... he did the same with the iphone. I objected many times. However I now own an iphone, and to be completely honest, I couldn't live with out it. So he was right there.
I should also mention he's an apple geek.
When we go to the mall, he puts up with my forever 21 shopping if I don't act too bored at the apple store. He proudly displayed an apple sticker on my last car. When I was in labor with Momo he successfully hooked up the laptop up to the TV in the delivery room (so we could watch movies from his computer) after the nurses said no one had ever successfully accomplished said feat. (He felt pretty cool). Then he discussed apple computers for the next half hour with my obgyn. Really, my doc pulled up a chair they were in deep discussion about their mutual love for all things apple. Hello... I'm in labor here people... (just kidding, I adore my o.b. really he's the best. If you need an o.b. I've got one for you)! They were BFF's by the time Momo was born.
So the other day J is expressing a slew of reasons he feels I "NEED" an ipad. We were talking about books. (I've mentioned my love for children's books a couple of times here on the blog). So I said the ipad may be great for other books, but it would never be able to produce a decent childrens book. I mean who want's to sit down and read a book to their kids via ipad. It seems like the magic wouldn't be there. Then last night J sent me this.
J one Anj zero....I stand corrected.
That is pretty freaking amazing. I L*O*V*E everything about it.
I still don't know that I "need" an ipad. I need a cheese grater because mine broke and it posed a problem with the shepherds pie last night. I also need a hand held mixer. It finally died after years of loyal service and I'm sure my neighbor is tired of lending me hers (thanks again Rach). But J is starting his battle. It starts subtle, mentioning it, sending me links like this, bringing up how much easier my life would be if only I had one... (his tactics would put Ralphie Parkers quest for an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle to shame... can you shoot your eye out with an ipad)? Until one day he'll just come home with one.
Apple needs to make a white flag with a silver apple on it for wives like me.
We'll call it the...
Maybe I'll make them and sell them on etsy;)
