I’m such a homebody and the only day this week I’ve been home was Monday! Tuesday and Wednesday I was teaching, Thursday in Joplin to get the air conditioner fixed, Friday to Pittsburg to get new tires and then back again that afternoon for Vince to pick up the other tires, today back to Pittsburg (that’s 3 times in 2 days I’ve been to Pittsburg!) to get the radio installed. I can’t believe I waited so long to get the new radio . . it wasn’t expensive and I can plug in the XM Radio and the iPod . . just what I’ve been wanting!
Most everyone knows I do not like eating off a buffet and I do not like Chinese food. Vince loves it and I knew he wanted to eat Chinese in Pittsburg today so I agreed . . after all . . I was getting a new radio and the whole trip over there was to get it installed so I was a good wife and agreed to eat at the Chinese buffet.
Speaking of good wife . . Vince said . . it’s your car . . you drive! I didn’t mind driving because our rule is that the driver gets to pick the radio station and we do not listen to the same music. But I’m driving over and we’re talking about the iPod and the radio. If you haven’t read the story about Vince’s iPod, it’s here. Long story short, he’s never ever once taken it out of the box. He drives about 2 miles to work and he never ever take sthe pickup anywhere except to work and back. So . . I’m driving along on our way to Pittsburg, just barely left home and here’s our conversation.
Vince: I may have a new radio put in my pickup so I can listen to my iPod.
Vince: Are you still using your original iPod?
Me: Thinking . . Oh, crud! I would be IF I could find it! But, he knows I want the new radio so I can listen to the iPod in the car. So, I said . . well, I have a newer one too!
He didn’t care but darn it . . I didn’t bring the iPod because I didn’t want to have an argument about why I had a new one. Got that discussion over with anyway. He was more aggravated at me that I’ve lost the iPod again than he was that I bought a new one.
I promise to have some quilt related posts coming soon!
