Re: Gear Purchase Confessions
Try opening a small on-line fly shop from your home, then you can tell her that you ordered " it " ( whatever it is ) for a customer.
The fact that it’s been in your possession for over a year and the customer hasn’t coming calling for it yet, is immaterial.
You’ll find that you’ll need to order a great many things, in order to keep abreast of the latest developments in your profession. As they arrive, display them proudly and show each to her. Explain that someday, she'll reap the rewards of these early minimal investments ... and that you are only doing this to protect her long term financial security. Remember always, you’re doing this for her.
She should be impressed, tearful even that you’re so inspired as a provider. “Just look at how many hours he has to put in at this second job when he comes home.”
He’s slaving away, pouring through fly fishing catalogs, conducting market research and developing customer leads by spending every remaining waking hour on fly fishing websites.
Yes indeed, she’s married a real go getter !
