I’m torturing my husband

Jeff has a birthday coming up so I shopped at one of his favourite stores a week or so ago.

His birthday present arrived in the mail. A big cardboard box from Cabelas. He already saw the slip that came in the mail that I had a package to pick up, so I really couldn’t lie and make it disappear, could I?

So now Jeff is being tortured by a cardboard box with a beautiful Cabelas label on it and he’s counting down the days until he can open it.

I was thinking I could do a special blog feature – I could take Jeff’s picture with the box every day. Jeff sitting at his laptop with the box beside him. Jeff watching tv with the box beside him. Jeff eating dinner, with the box beside him. He wasn’t game though. He’s actually rather miserable about it.

  1. Just give it to the poor bastard already. You can’t torture the fella like that! Pretty soon he will realize that if he is careful he can open it and retape it before you realize.

  2. I don’t think there is much chance getting it before my birthday. I think she is actually enjoying my suffering.
