He whispered, “Sweetheart?”
“Hrmnn..?” She moves a finger, and nothing else. For some reason, her eyes refuse to open. Damn dry eyes.
“I’m going out to get an oil change and run some errands. Made the appointment for the new windshield for tomorrow too.”
He says nothing, but doesn’t leave. She sighs and clears her throat. “Ok? And?” It’s muffled, because she’s speaking into her pillow.
“Well, if I were to go and, uhmmm… find something for $199.99 plus tax, in, maybe green…? Uh… exactly where in town would I need to do that? Exactly.”
She giggles, and gives him the names of 2 camera stores in the area.
My friend Saucy posted some pictures on Facebook a couple weeks ago [Edit: oh, and on her blog too – here] taken with a cool, inexpensive but very kicky water/shock/sand&dust/freeze-proof camera. It’s made by FujiFilm, and it’s exactly what I need for trips to the beach, and afternoons spent in the pool where I don’t want to risk my beloved Nikon. Just so happens we spend a lot of time in the pool, are planning a trip to the beach next week, and my
birthday anniversary is imminent. Saucy has impeccable timing.
When I first saw her facebook pictures, I looked the camera up, drooled a little, and immediately posted this on the Hubby’s Wall on FB:
” Wondering what to get me for my birthday? http://www.fujifilm.ca/x21831.xml – in Green! :) “
His response was, “Uh, Jenn? How many cameras do you need?”
(So I have a few cameras… Shut up.)
“Hon, what I don’t have is a wa-ter-proof camera. I want this camera, and I don’t really need anything else. Besides, you never know what to get me for my birth… errr anniversary, and I’ve given you the perfect idea. Why are you complaining?”
He couldn’t argue with that logic. I’m nothing if not logical.
Now, how do I deal with a teenager that suddenly decided that she “has to have a lip ring or she’ll just die“?
Sigh. Perhaps another post, for another time.
Note: this is NOT a paid post. However, if Fujifilm were to see this and WANT to compensate me for a review of their cameras (of which I own several; I’m a fan!) I would not be adverse to discussing it with them. Just sayin’. :)
