It's getting that time of year again, when my wife starts asking "What do you want for Christmas ? "
She usually starts shopping for everyone 2 or 3 months in advance and doesn't have to deal with all the last minute hassle. Me, I wait till the last
2 weeks and go running all over or scouring the internet for what I want. This time I said "Honey, I just don't know. I've got everything I want
and I just can't think of a thing"
She said "Well how about a new fossil "
Now, to be clear, I've been collecting them for about 40 years and other than the big ones like a T Rex, you'd be hard pressed to find one I don't
have. So, just kidding around, I got online and found this :
It's a Daspletosaurus skull, over 3 ft long and costs $8500. She had went to go get dressed for work and when she came back in, I showed it to her
and she asked "Is that really what you want ? "
I said "Sure , I can put it right here in the living room "
She just said Ok and copied the website to her phone and since she was running a few minutes late, gave me a quick kiss and headed out the door.
Remember, I'm just kidding around and thought she was too
. 15 minutes after she left, I thought " Wait, surely she doesn't think I was
I try to call her on her way to work [ She has all the hands free blue tooth stuff in her car ] she answered and said she was talking to her Mom and
she'd call me back. She got to work and called me before she went in and I told her I was kidding about the skull.
She said "Too late "
Now, I'm 60% sure she was just giving me hell, but if not.............
What the hell did I just do.
