I made my DH's head hurt the other day. He rarely goes shopping with me...maybe once a year. A few days ago I needed a specific style shoe. He was helping me look and he spotted a pair he thought I might like and I spotted a pair that was exactly what I was looking for. The store was having a buy one get one half off promotions, so I bought both pairs. I realized the pair he picked were nearly identical to another pair I have, but it was a really good deal on a shoe that I know I love to wear and my other pair is on it's last leg.
When we got home he noticed they were the same shoe.
DH: Hon, I'm sorry, but I picked out a pair of shoes you already have. Do you want to go exchange them?
Me: I knew they were the same.
DH: Then why did you get them?
Me: Because they are one of my favorite pairs of shoes and my old pair aren't going to make it through Christmas.
DH: They look fine.
Me: They are my shoes. Trust me. I'm hard on them and if they make it two more months without something breaking, it will by a small miracle.
DH: But they're the same shoes!
Me: I know that. I like them. I'm keeping them.
DH: <muttering> but they're the same... <repeatedly shaking head and remuttering>
Every girl I know got it. Is it that difficult for a man to wrap his head around?
I admit freely to being a shoe hound. I love shoes.
