My ten year anniversary is coming up on the 22nd. I have been hinting around at what I would like but I don't think that my husband can take a hint. I want a new wedding band. When we got married we were both kind of poor so I opted for a plain gold band and the much nicer more expensive platinum engagement ring. I haven't been wearing my ring because one of the brackets that flank the diamonds is loose. Here is me hinting around:
I really need to get my ring fixed and while I am there maybe I will check out some bands.
Isn't the tenth anniversary the 'buy your wife a new band' anniversary?
He ignores me. But this is what he said to me the other day:
Chad: I really wish I had some music to listen to while I am at the gym or jogging.
Me: Really? Do you want to borrow my iPod? (I got a dirty look.)
Me: Do you want one for our anniversary? I was going to get you satellite radio but if you would rather an iPod I will get you what you want.
Chad: I don't want a gift.
Me in my head: Well I do and it better be a good one!
So like a good wife with my first paycheck back to work I went out and bought him an iPod and an itunes card. See, I can take a hint!
