yesterday right after work, instead of going home, we decided to go to the mall and get one of the names off of the christmas giving tree at the mall. unfortunately/fortunately there were not any left. it made me feel good to see that all of these kids got taken care of and would have a good christmas. well the guy working at the gift drop off desk said that there was one child who got some of the things that he needed, but didn't get anything on his wishlist. he said that if we wanted we could get him an mp3 player and some music to put on it, he would just throw it in the bag with the other stuff. so off we went to find an mp3 player for a child named jessi.
well after we gave the gift, sean said, "i hope she has a good christmas. i wish we knew more about her." i was under the impression the whole time that this was a boy. i said, "well, the paper said he was 16, and i am pretty sure it was a boy." he said that jessi was a girl name. i told him that they guy kept referring to him as a he? so i dunno. we fought over it for a while on if it was a boy or a girl and then we remembered that it didn't really matter and hopefully they would enjoy their gift anyway. i still think it's a boy but sean thinks it is a girl so i don't know.
anyway, sean has really been into guns lately. he has never had one, and never been hunting, but he really wanted a gun. so yesterday he got one. i caved. "but chloe, it is on sale and it's last years model and it will save us money in the long run and we will always have food to eat because i can provide."
i wish i wouldn't have already done his christmas shopping though. see what happens when i am productive and get stuff done early? crap like this. we could have saved so much money had i just waited til the last minute and paid for the gun or something like that.
also, a lot of his gifts i want to give him now. i am way too impatient to get christmas shopping done early. this is why i wait until christmas eve. i am not tempted to give out gifts early. i decided i am never getting my shopping done early again. its a waste of money and time. ;)
anyway, sean got his gun and he passed his background check and i was really grateful for that because i probably should have done that before we got married but i have a feeling that my dad might have so we are good i think.
well sean was more excited about this gun than the cupcake car. he got a case for it, and some bullets and wanted to go show his mom and dad right away. so we went over there and waited for his parents to get home. the first thing his mom said when she saw it was, "GET THAT THING OUT OF MY HOUSE." sean assured me that she would say "You'll shoot your eye out!" but she didn't. anyway, i have to say i was really impressed because sean has clearly done his research on this purchase. he was asking the gun expert all these questions about scopes and other words that are too big for me to even say. i said, "wait, how do you know what the heck that is? how do you even know to ask that?"
he said, "i have been doing my research chloe."
man. makes me feel a little impulsive. i'm like "OOOoooo it's shiny and awesome? SOLD."
but then we realized that i spend money on cheap things that don't last very long and sean spends his money on more expensive things. that he takes really good care of and lasts forever. he was like, "chloe, you have your car paid off. doesn't it make you want to take better care of it?"
"ummm... no. it's paid off. so it doesn't really matter how i take care of it."
i guess we just think differently about things.
anyway, while we were at his parents, sean kept saying things like, "chloe. listen, this is amazing. it is like an investment. when the world is ending and everyone is scrambling for food, we will be eating steaks."
"but sean, you only have 20 bullets."
"chloe, that will feed us a lot of steak. dear steak."
"wow, you are pretty confident about those 20 bullets. you might only hit like 5 out of 20 targets with that?"
"then i will just shoot people for more bullets."
i said, "sean, if the world is ending and we have to 'go find our own food and prepare it' then i would rather you just use your gun to shoot me because i don't really want to live in a world like that."
he then pointed his gun at me and pretended to shoot me. i'm sure that is how he feels all of the time though so it's nothing new. maybe i should be worried now that he actually has a gun?
anyway, right now he is off shooting his gun. before he left, he woke me up by turning on some music and dancing in the hallway in his lounge pants that he is obsessed with and his cowboy hat on. i had to video tape it. if he is going to wake me up at noon on a saturday morning then he better be prepared for some consequences. he told me i couldn't put it on the blog, but i told him that he just got a really nice gun, so it is only fair. i think i am going to use the whole "i let you get a gun" thing for a long time. milk it for all it's worth right?
here it is. well, it is sideways. i apologize. i was laying in bed when i recorded it and i have tried to flip it on line but it won't let me and says i have to download all of this stuff and i don't want to..

oh and sean? i guess if you want to kill me for posting this, you now have a way to do so.
i hope you and your gun have a great life together.
