After coffee, Gray day Wife says you can't work in Garden, Let's go shopping. I have been avoiding this for so long I know I need to go or I will be on Big shite List. Antique store is first, we have a new Electric Fireplace & Mantle she just bought, flatscreen on top. She says it's too high, we look at a gigantic Salon table( very narrow ) she says what you think. I think if I say it's too big she'll be pissed and we can go back home and she can continue on her merry way.No Luck, she says I believe you're right, shite! On to Sears, we need a new Mattress she says, old one is 10 yrs old, I have my favorite hole in it, love it it's like a little foxhole, crap I say to myself. We look and look, finally exhausted from up and down , I see a bargain, She crazy about bargains, Floor Model Sterns& Foster floor model, was 7000$, only 1500$ now, her eyes glaze over, GOT HER. I tell her if you want it get it I'll be at the TVs , now we're talking. She finally comes back, she says what did you do while I was taking care of this? I sayI bought a 4K UHD 65 inch Samsung, now her hackles are up, You Did Not, I look at her and tell her YEP. We go home with her voice ringing in my ear, we were supposed to shop together, tell her cant help it it was a Deal.WOMEN, She wanted to shop didn't she.
Man, I feel your pain. I'd rather shoot nails through my feet than shop. I take my wife then find something to do like make sure the parking spaces are equal width and length. I took Barbara shoe shopping this week. She said she needed my opinion. I told her. "I got black and I got brown. That's my wheelhouse." Back to the parking lot for me.

What is it all about this strange cliche´about men don´t like shopping? I love shopping, dang I even like to shop for clothes! With my wife it´s a totally different story: She hates shopping and I really have to motivate her for getting a few new clothes every now and then. Sometimes I even pick them for her.
Well, I am a lucky fella after all - my wife doesn´t spend thousands on shoes, bag, clothes or whathaveyou. Leaves more for pipes....
Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.
Good ones! Luckily I'm out with regards to clothes shopping with the wife. Used to hate it. My wife goes to the grocery shop because we "have nothing in the fridge", returning with say 2 punnets of broccoli (we still have - in the fridge), milk (2 litres still - in the fridge), but no rice or cereal, of which we have nothing left and is written on the shopping list which is on the fridge door.
