Holiday Humor

A couple was Christmas shopping at the mall on Christmas Eve and the
mall was packed. As the wife walked through the mall she was surprised
to look up and see that her husband was nowhere around. She was quite upset
because they had a lot to do.

Because she was so worried, she called him on her cell phone to ask
him where he was.

In a calm voice, the husband said, “Honey, do you remember the jewelry
store we went into about 5 years ago where you fell in love with that
diamond necklace that we could not afford and I told you that I would
get it for you one day?”

The wife choked up and started to cry and said, “Yes, I remember that
jewelry store.”

He said, “Well, I’m in the bar right next to it.”

    Haha…my hubs can do that lol, even though height have stopped to get the jewelry. Even my dad can, cause he did something similar to my mom when we were younger on mother’s day. This had me smiling lol

        Yeah, I can see a hubby doing that AFTER buying the necklace but intentionally neglecting to mention it until he sees her in person…

        Actually, now that I think about it, I sort of did that once. I was out buying a car as a surprise gift for My Beloved but the deal took a LOT longer to transact than I’d anticipated, so I called her a couple of times to keep postponing when I was going to be home “while being out with a friend”. I hadn’t lied; the friend was with me–but I’d left out the little detail about surprising her with a car.

        By the time I got home it was VERY late, hours later than I’d originally planned, and she was STEAMING. I came in all sheepishly and told her that “something happened to your car” (it had; it got replaced by a much better one but she didn’t know it yet). At that point my life expectancy was probably about two minutes.

        I somehow convinced her to go outside. There she saw her brand new car wrapped in a huge ribbon with a great big bow. On the steering wheel was a Teddy Bear and a bottle of Champagne.

        It had been my turn to get a new car so she was very surprised when she got another new one before I got one.

        The evening ended well…
