Then I had a dilemma - you have 14 days to return items but it was more than 14 days to Christmas.
I had no choice: I had to get him to try it all on.
First the PJs, which he stared at silently before observing glumly, 'It's monogrammed. You can't send it back anyway.'
Good point. I re-wrapped the PJs and pulled out the slippers, which he stared at even more silently.
'You don't like them?' I prompted.
'I, ah, wouldn't have picked them out for myself,' he admitted. His eyes tracked longingly to his beloved tatty old house shoes.
'Why not?' I demanded. 'They're nice!'
'I'll look like a domesticated American man in those things,' he muttered.
Well, he had a point. A girl can dream, can't she? I mean, if I can wear a Dirndl, he can suck it up and wear Land's End liesure wear.
But... long story short, I kept the PJs and sent the slippers back. Baby steps.
While in California he received an iPad from our CEO in recognition of his hard work. K and L were highly excited about this, since the iPad games include a farting cat. They usually resent his long hours, but as soon as they understood that the iPad was his reward for said long hours L (5) shoved him toward his office and K (7) told him to try and earn us a Wii next time.
Oh, and a belated Happy Thanksgiving - heading into 9 months and my tummy's bigger than the turkey!
