See How Much Money I'm Saving You?


I read a post oozing with a volcanic outburst of clever (here). And this post reminded me of the time I told spouse "See How Much Money I'm Saving You?"

When Spouse and I were dating (wasn't Spouse then), he wanted me to cut his hair so I decided to give it a stab. Having no experience at cutting hair, I found my scissoring technique might benefit from the help of some clippers. Clippers are very consistent you know.

So I said, "Why don't you buy me some clippers to help in the haircutting process?" He said okay and I take him to the fanciest beauty supply joint in town.

At the supply de beauty extraordinaire, I pick out the most expensive clippers. I think they were fifty bucks. He squirmed a bit and I reminded him of his current 18-buck-a-shot haircutting girl.

"See How Much Money I'm Saving you?" I said.

"You have no idea." Said he, while fidgeting with the diamond ring in his pocket.*

*By the way, I didn't know he had a ring in his pocket. That detail came at a later time - after a few years of my saving him money.

Thank you.

I am glad he chose you so that you could save him so much money.

I love both blogs! Thankfully for me my dear hubby cuts his own. It is quite a sight. He stands nude in the shower with his clippers and two carefully positioned mirrors! If only all of you could see.

We could see Winder if only you'd share. You're so selfish these days.

I remember the whole episode well.

For a time I switched to a bic but now am back to paying way too much for a hair cut. Perhaps when midget man gets a little better with the mower ...

for the record, my spouse cuts the lawn :-)
