    Its the comment that has me wondering? I don't have the type relationship that requires sewing machines and such. I thought maybe CRC, Tracy, or RH would give me a hint. No offense, but guys are men so you don't speak woman.

    Sounds like you need to poll the likes of the metrosexual guys residing in such bastions of 'equality' as San Francisco.........

    Unexpected Night Out, nice dinner, and possibly jewelry, or her favorite things...Could be a gift certificate for a mani/pedi, or a massage....But yes, some sort of gift is needed here Sea....:)

    No, you did GOOD! Sewing machine, in my life, is NOT a gift...kind of like a toaster, or coffee pot, etc...Those are necessities...not gifts. You hit the nail on the head...Dinner and a small gift...Jewelry doesn't have to be expensive you know....especially not with Silver being so popular...;)

    You did good... :)

    And of course I'm assuming his wife is a wine drinking, Raised in the South..(with a capital S) woman like me...I could be wrong, and perhaps she'd like a sewing machine... :)

    A simple "That's nice dear" could mean a myriad of things. I'd say the meaning is not found in the words, the meaning is completely dependent on the tone of voice.

    It could mean that, having been married to you long enough to know the approximate value of each and every firearm available to man, she's quickly run the numbers in her head to determine how much she's now able to spend on something she doesn't really need, but thinks is really cool. You, knowing this is fair and balanced, will not overreact when seeing this new - seemingly unnecessary - item, but will reciprocate with "That's nice dear."

    It may mean that you've made shopping for your birthday/anniversary much easier for her, as you have a new baby that needs both accessorizing and feeding.

    Or, it could be that the tone was backed with a sigh of relief. That you went to Wannamacher and all you came back with was a Colt Python.

    I like Tracy's definitions much better; no offense, CRC, but she's married so has more recent experience in the man/woman equivalent of Spanglish. I'm pretty sure she didn't mean number two, Tracy. She must have meant number three for sure, because I had my eye on a 4-bore and and 8-bore pair of rifles that cost more than the airplane that I want.

    Now that makes me nervous; you think a new vacuum cleaner will do it? I take her to dinner several times a week already.

    My wife always says "Do what you gotta do..." Which means don't even think about doing what you just told me you wanted to do...!
