*Scene takes place last night on my couch, while watching movies*
ME: Will you buy me some yarn?
SNOOKUMS: Depends on what kind of yarn it is...(He's smart enough to know that he should ask questions about the type first...before I bankrupt him.)
ME: Will you buy me some yarn? I'll need about 13-15 balls.
SNOOKUMS: *sigh accompanied by raised, "are you crazy", eyebrows*
ME: (I opened the Knitpicks catalog.) I want this yarn right here...(I showed him this. See, it's not much.) I want it in Emerald. Isn't it beautiful?
ME: Ooooh, let me show you what I want to make with it. When you see the sweater I want to make, you'll say "Oh my God, that's beautiful! I must buy you that yarn because I want you to make that beautiful sweater!
I went to my magazine rack and found the fall 2008 issue of Vogue knitting. Then I showed him this:
SNOOKUMS: Oh, that's interesting.
ME: Baby? Can you buy me that yarn?
ME: *BIG KOOL-AID SMILE*
