A Sign of the Apocalypse

Ryan and I were sitting on the couch last night watching our television that in recent weeks has developed weird wavy lines in the screen.

Ryan: I think we should get a new TV.
Me: What?
Ryan: You know, use the economic stimulus money to buy a new TV.
Me: You don't want to use that to save endangered tree sloths? Or buy esoteric books on philosophy?
Ryan: Well, look at the TV.

I really didn't know how to react after that, so I just sat quietly and prayed that when the four horsemen pulled up outside of our house Sally won't bark too loudly and wake the neighbors.

Your husband and my husband apparently are polar opposites.
Our first mutual tax refund went to a big screen..... I had no say in the matter - I wanted a new bathroom sink and a plumber to install it.... I still don't have that. But we have every game system known to man....
