My hubby is, as we speak, down the street buying a new microwave.
Yes. I have allowed him out to forage for groceries and fetch a replacement appliance without supervision!
I'm scared as hell!
I'm seriously hoping he brings back something in the "doesn't-require-a-degree-in-rocket-science-to-use" type range.
Don't get me wrong. My hubby is not a complete imbecile. He just doesn't think the same way I do. He'll be fine with the groceries (for the most part), but the appliance? He probably will be thinking more about brand, size and how they look instead of brand, size and ease of use.
Take this morning, for instance............. he tried to ring his sister. Her mobile phone was disconnected. He tried her home phone. It too was disconnected. So then he decides that "something" must be very wrong.
Me, I just presume that their ongoing saga with Telstra has led to them not paying their bill and switching over services, something she would tell him when she next popped round for coffee.
Do you see what I mean by thinking differently?
So you can imagine my terror at the idea of him choosing my appliances for me then?
