you find a deal on a boombox, call them make the deal than you have to hit up your most understanding friends and ask," hey can you do me a favor..." and before you can finish you hear "how far we driving and what kind of box you getting?"

you see a sale for a boombox you never thought youd see and you feel a sense of real panic.

you tell your wife to be sure to save room for 1, 2, 3 boomboxes on your first ever week long family vacation. Only to tell her while on vacation that she now has to find room for the new box , and the beach cart you inherited for the ride home. :-/ :sad:

But most importantly, you know you love your husband when you do all that with a smilegrin, and say "Sure thing honey". :smooch:
