Scene; Me and wife sitting on couch.
Her; Looking at destinations for our 4th anniv.
Me; Doing something usefull (looking at motorcycle and rallycross stuff online)
Her; Noticing I'm looking at something a little too closley (mouth open. Blank, intent stare usually reserved for staring at Ferraris or Zondas).
Her; Is that bike something you would want for your 40th birthday? How would you feel if you came home and found that in the garage.
Me; Slowley turning to her and saying. Dear. My love. Coming home and finding that in the garage, would be like coming home and finding you and Christina Ricci making out on the couch dressed as schoolgirls.
Her; (Smiling) Well I don't think I can swing Christina Ricci. But I'm pretty sure I can do the bike and the schoogirl outfit.
Me; Mentally high fiving myself for choosing such an awesome wife.
I consider myself a pretty frugal guy. I have decided a few months back that if anything ever happened to my SV, I would source a Super Duke. I'm always looking at used stuff, however I would spring for a brand new one of these.
