So, what do you do when your husband buys you something you really WANT, but know you don't NEED....and you know he spent a lot of money on it...money that could be spent on other more necessary things??
Take the gift and be thankful?
Say "Thank you! I love it! But, please take it back" ??
Ask that he exchange it for something similar, but perhaps a less expensive model?
So, Z couldn't wait to give me my Mother's Day gifts...I asked for a bottle of my favorite perfume...but he came home with a LAPTOP COMPUTER. Yes - I LOVE it! But...I don't NEED it...I already have one. Granted, the one I have is getting old...the CD drive no longer works...and I think the hard drive is on its way out...But I was so not expecting him to come home with a computer!! Yikes!
Now, I have to admit I have been salivating over the Mac AirBook...A computer THAT thin! Imagine the places you could take it! I also know that it isn't terribly practical for me (and a Mac AirBook is NOT what Z came home with today (thankfully)). Recently, Z has gotten really into programming and has been working on the Linux system with his computer. And, I know that he would take my old laptop, stick the Linux operating system on it and go to work playing with it. So, I know my old laptop won't be wasted...but still. Do I NEED a new one right now? After all, I just finished my thesis and now I basically use the computer to play. This requires some thinking.
