So DSM and I went out shopping today — just half-assed, goofing off shopping plus a small grocery store trip, nothing major (which is good, ’cause I didn’t find any of the things I was looking for). But the reason WHY we went shopping is an interesting one…
THE CONCUBINE ASKED DSM NOT TO GO IN ANY STORES.
I know, right? Let’s leave aside the fact that this sort of request would NEVER fly with yours truly — I think we all know I’d be at Macy’s before you could say “charge it!” But it’s the WORDING of it that gets me — “please don’t go in any stores.” Not even to look!!! WHAT IS LIFE WITHOUT LOOKING???
So we abided by the rule yesterday, but we busted out today and went to the Christmas Tree Shop (LOVE IT!), the dollar store, Barnes and Noble, and the A&P. The only place we got anything on the list was the A&P, although it was harder than hell to leave the Barnes and Noble empty-handed.
I did get a mighty fine mug at the Christmas Tree Shop, though.
So it’s your turn, Hooligans — what’s the most insane, WTF request a significant other has made of you? And most importantly, didja do it? Or knock their fool ass out?
