My husband, the Original Obnoxious One, recently celebrated a BIG birthday – yes he turned the BIG 5-0.
So what did he want for his birthday? A trip to Paris with yours truly? Or Italy? A cruise? A new car perhaps? Dinner out? No, you’ll NEVER guess. Really!
So I went and checked this thing out – apparently he’s had his eye on it for years. While I am the first to admit that the totem pole is not my cup of tea (I would rather spend my money on travel or champagne or buy jewels or…), I figured there were worse things the Original Obnoxious One could ask for…like a motorcycle, or a Wildebeest head ( a friend got that for his 50th). And the funny thing is, the totem pole is growing on me…slowly, very slowly yes, but still.
Besides, in the VERY far future I too will turn 50 one day…maybe.
And tet me tell you, diamonds are on my list.
