    Just before she left for Seattle for the birth of our Granddaughter, my wife stocked the house with food and also 3 cases of beer, and told me "that should last you until I get home." I of course agreed without thinking.

    FOOTBALL!:cool:

    That was a week ago Wednesday, the 5th.

    I just finished my second case. Not that I can't just go buy another, we are not destiture, but I would also have to explain it since she checks our bank accounts and balance daily...and thinks I drink too much (she isn't Polish, she doesn't get it..:confused:)

    Can I help it if opening day NFL the Bills sucked so I drank more than normal?

    And today they not only won but looked great doing it, so I drank more than normal??:D


    I either have to endure the "wrath of a great woman scorned," drink less between now and when she comes back on the 8th, find a way to "obscure" a purchase in the receipts, or sell some guns....:eek::p;););)

    Hmm - dilemma - I think I'd keep the guns, finish off the last case then sleep until she got home - either that or I'd offer to mow a neighbors lawn for cash for more beer :)

    Oh yea make that old lady happy.

    Well after 15 -20 years no matter what i did made her happy. So she got caught up with another guy.

    So now i look back at all the beers i could have had and all the women i could have had but passed up for her so we could grow old together.

    I wouldn't go asking another guy if its ok to drink another beer if you want to stay married.

    You know there is a house in New Orleans they call the rising sun.......

    DO NOT SELL THE GUNS! :D

    Myself personally i'd go buy more beer. My wife and I have an understanding, we get whatever we want, whenever we want without having to ask one and other. As long as the bills are paid and theres money to be spent.

    just start checking between the cushions for loose change:D

    Hey another thought. If you have a whirlpool built dryer, take the front off and check for money in there too. Seriously if you guys don't empty your pockets, a whilrpool will suck in your loose change like a slot machine:D

    Loose change?

    Really at this point in the game i say just go buy the beer and heck with her. For Christ sake look at what bozo has stolen out of your checkbook and what he will be.

    In fact what the heck are we saving the planet for anyway? The liberals? If they dont take over today they will eventually get it and run the world into the ground. I throw my trash out the truck window now. I dont care, i aint saving it for them.

    Get drunk. Yea i know im in mood. I should just go to bed.

    Oh I'm for just buying the beer too. But he wanted ideas, I'm just throwing out suggestions.

    Simple, pshooter.....
    Buy a 1.75 litre of Gin and some grapefruit juice [greyhound]
    and nurse the beers in between......
    Technically, you have done nothing wrong......
    If she gets home and calls you out on the 'you knew what
    I meant' provision of the 'contract'......
    then use the Viagra......just be sure first.....don't waste it...
    er, I mean use it if you don't need to.

    Easy.. Do all the laundry and dishes. scrub the toilets and go out and buy her a nice addition to her jewelry collection. Then when she returns present her with her gift and she will notice the unusually clean house and ask what happened. simply tell her your bills ( :bleh:) did amazing in week 2 so you felt compelled to celebrate and thought she might like a gorgeous new (whatever) and while you were out, on her bahalf of course, you just thought it would be a good idea to grab and extra case or 2 of beer so you wouldnt have to worry about running out any time soon..

    I know its a 300 dollar fix for a 20 dollar problem but itll work!

    Oh I got it figured out.

    Cross the damm bridge when you get there (after all, I'm not out YET.)

    Knowing that WHATEVER I do when I get there she will figure out. After 32 years we know each other almost TOO well....:p

    Also knowing that there is very little I can do that will make her stay mad too long anyway...;)

    Plus make sure I don't save any itemized reciepts!!!:D

    Prolly the safe move. Heck she might show up with 3 more cases when she gets home if she knows you that well. ;)

    I know, find a diamond shop that will kick in a keg if you buy her a nice rock. Then watch her smile when she looks at the monthly statement.
