Rob and I went shopping on Friday night. Let me just assure you that he was THRILLED with this activity. THRILLED. Really. I could barely restrain him from wanting to leave early and go to extra stores. Ahem.
So, after I used the cattle prod and got him in the car...
We went shopping for new dress clothes for him. His old dress pants were horrible. They desperately needed replaced. I'd been out during my day of leisure :) at the same store and I'd noticed a good sale.
We got there and I took him straight to the sale pants. He approved. He started trying them on. Now, for some unknown reason, he dislikes for me to browse while he's doing this. But, I did anyway. I'm like that. I found a FABULOUS peach-colored dress shirt and an AWESOME rather hip tie to go with it. It matched the new brown dress pants beautifully. I told him the shirt was orange. :)
We gathered up all our purchases (he let me include a brand-new purse ... wasn't that sweet?) ...
... and made our way to the cash register.
The cashier was looking a bit frazzled. It was Friday the 13th and evidently the loonies were out in force. So, we tried to be nice. Rob in particular was being charming. He's accustomed to calming down frazzled women. After all, he lives with ME. :)
So, I handed the cashier my % off coupon. She looked at it and then looked at our rather high total. Her eyes traveled over the people in our immediate vicinity. I thought this was rather odd. Then with a FLIRTATIOUS GIGGLE and a glance at ROB, she whipped out her EMPLOYEE DISCOUNT card and scanned it in so we saved an extra TWENTY DOLLARS.
I was THRILLED.
I am taking Rob shopping MORE OFTEN.
He is NOT thrilled. :)
Anyone want to rent a Rent-A-Robert? :) He's worth the rental fee just for the extra savings you'll find shopping! :)
