The Secret to Winning

Pin It A real life conversation...

Steve: So, honey I was looking at the bank account... {this conversation only occurs when he is seeing fabric purchased}

Me: Yesss....?

Steve: What is $, $, $, $, $, $, $?  {Yes, there are seven dollar entries}

Me: Oh those.  I won them!  On Ebay...

Steve:  Ummm I don't think it's winning when YOU have to pay.

Me:  Well, don't worry, there are others that I'm going to lose.

Steve:  Others???

Note: the Ebay and Etsy apps for the iPhone are very dangerous!  You can shop anywhere with them; in the Dr's office, in the hospital, day or night...  And now I have a new iPhone 4 and everything is even faster.  Poor Steve!

I love winning... :D

Yes, Mark and I have had that very conversation! The other thing that doesn't really work on him is when I tell him I got something on a fabulous sale. And he turns around and says: "You didn't SAVE money. You SPENT money." Party pooper...

That IS dangerous and I will have to remember to NOT get one of those phones! But I love to "win" too! Best, Lisa

Thanks for making me laugh. I've had similar conversations a few times. Luckily for our bank account I don't have an iPhone :)
