Calypso and I were watching TV over the holiday break when a Kay Jewelers ad came on and ended with the annoying jingle, "Every kiss begins with Kay." Calypso then began a bit of a rant. "Every kiss begins with blood diamonds. I don't ever want a diamond, not even when I get engaged. I'll know I have the right guy when he proposes with a cuckoo clock in his hands!" Yep, my girl wants a cuckoo clock as a promise of future wedded bliss. Yep, this makes me smile inwardly with pride.
Diana stated her intention of going out on Black Friday and asked if I wanted to come along. I gave a very emphatic NO because told her no bargain exists that could make me want to brave the insanity and greed that is the retail feeding frenzy of Black Friday. She hastened to explain she had no intention of shopping. She just wanted to mess with people by finding scarce items at WallyMart to load her cart with and drive people out of their minds while she paraded the items before eventually returning them to shelves in the wrong department. I have to admit I was tempted by that.
