So this blogging thing is super gay, but I have to post something that happened on Saturday between me and Kamaile.
We were getting ready to go on our little trip to the park, and as we were getting ready I walked out of the closet and caught something out of the corner of my eye that I've never seen before. It looked foreign and I thought, hmm...Weird something didn't look right. Not giving it another thought, I kept walking. That's when it hit me.
That sweater is new!!! What the heck? So I inquizitively asked Kamaile, "Hey, who's sweater is this?" No response, Waiting, and waiting and waiting.
Finally I hear, "Umm...What sweater?" Said Kamaile, with the sweetest most innocent voice possible.
My response of course was, "Duh, this new one sitting on the bed." I was thinking to myself, does she think I wouldn't notice. Seeing that the tag and Old Navy bag was sitting on the floor.
This is when I really started to press the issue.
*Disclaimer* Yes I am a cheap-O like Kamaile says, and yes I do question every purchase she makes and yes she still tries to sneak them by me. Oh and yes, it never works!!!
Anyways, she comes in to the bedroom and says as she flutters her eyes. "Oh that my new sweater, don't you like it?'
Seriously, how dumb would I be to say, "That's the ugliest thing I've ever seen," but really it is nice and I do like it. But...
So I asked, "how did you pay for it?" Her response, was "Money, Duh" Again I am cheap and kinda got irritated. Then she tells me, "Don't worry I used a gift card."
Thinking my wife is wonderful I was very happy to hear that, but then I started thinking. Kamaile called me yesterday from Old Navy where she took the boys shopping to use the gift card that our friend had given us. FOR THE BOYS.
Then I posed the question, "Wasn't that gift card for the boys?" At that point I could see the gears turning in Kamaile's mind. Her response was "Well yeah, it was for the boys"
Hmm...So we were given a gift card for the boys, Kamaile takes them to Old Navy and comes away with sweater. Very Interesting I thought to myself.
Then I asked, "So what did you get for the boys then?" Long pause...Kamaile says, "Well they didn't have anything good for the boys and I'm always getting free clothes for them, so I bought this for myself."
That was an interesting reason I thought to myself. I said, "Well, its nice but I can't believe you didn't get the boys anything."
Later that day...
We're driving home from our outing, I began to inquire about the Old Navy trip again. I asked Kamaile, "So was that the only thing you got at Old Navy?" Me being slick, I've already looked at the reciept and know that she did.
Kamaile's response, "Why do you ask?" She had that look of guilt all over her face. I replied, oh nothing, just wondering"
A few minutes of silence... Then the confession. Kamaile said, "Okay, so I bought this shirt, an undershirt and the sweater."
I was amazed but at the same time thinking, well at least it was on a gift card.
Morale of the story. IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE.
I love her, as she is always keeping me on my toes.
Never a dull moment in the Heide Ohana.
