I took a little artistic license with that comment, only because I'm getting old and the neurons ain't workin' like they used to.
Personally, my only regret was that I couldn't hide the cost of a minigun from my wife, so I didn't buy one. She's German-Polish Catholic. No divorce. One of us has to die. It would be me.
that was me and it was "tell me that didn't cost $500"...my response was "I promise it was not $500". We were both happy and I don't feel I lied. Truth be told, if she knew the gun was $4000 she would freak but I rationalize it it because I could be at the bar or the casino. Now I tell her different numbers for my camera gear...we both stay happy!
