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.
