If the stars were perfectly aligned, I could see myself doing that. But then reality would set in, and I'd blow it by spouting off "dammit, I have to keep replacing these damn dead fish!!!" within earshot of the DW.

Luvin' me is a double edged sword.....:confused:

awww, he's a sweetie.

of course I notice. You can learn a lot about a person by their dress and jewelry. How they carry themselves. Even more interesting when they open their mouths and start talking... and when you can see them in action.

Bet the fish don't.

Really, though, it's very sweet. That's the type of white lie a woman can grow to love.

Necklace on man

Yesterday I got hand written card from a pretty young woman who works at my MegaBank.

Mr. Ha,

Thank you for choosing the Main Street Bank of Money! It was a pleasure to help you when you stopped in today, we hope to see you again soon!

BTW, I like your necklace!! It is unique!!

-Nicola

Either this is a clear sell signal for the stock of this prominent bank, or this lovely sweetie liked my necklace. I'm going with #2.

Ha

CFB, don't be so cynical. I'm sure that your wife would have married you even if you weren't a millionaire. In case I'm wrong, there is always heading to Central America or East Asia to impress the young ladies.
