The wife is being an absolute sweetheart lately.
Last night I said I was feeling a bit hungry and on goes a chicken stir-fry.
“you watch t.v darling, I’ll look after that” she said. And she did .
This morning she cleaned the deck in the back garden, tidied up around the front and rang me
at work to see what I wanted for dinner.
I know she’s after buying something. i just didn’t find it yet.

Not being married, I’m not familiar with the rules. Would it be a breach of protocol to jump directly to, “Alright. What is it, and how much?”?

JJohnston, bad form, very bad form, unless you enjoy being fried alive by twin laser beams coming from her eyes right into your chest cavity. (laughing)

Could be she is realizing what a great father and husband you are, but do not count on it. Is her birthday
or your anniversary coming up? Just remember to thank her properly for all these kindnesses.

Gus – maybe there is a grain of truth in what you say.
I am, after all, a fine, handsome cut of a man ( see pic ) with many outstanding qualities & attributes.
Maybe she finally realises what a great catch I am/was.
It’s obvious when you think about it. )

Man, are you lucky, if you wife shows a little guilt about spending money. The UPS truck stopped by this morning and unloaded eleven huge boxes into the garage. The Warden never gave me a clue—I’ve been eating the same leftovers for weeks.

Still no idea what she bought.
