Quoted from emkay:
I too am getting married this summer, to a pinhead. I proposed at the beginning of the year but without a ring, knowing darn well I knew nothing about jewelry and she never wears any so I had nothing to go on. We're kinda plain that way on purpose - no jewelry, cable TV, air conditioning, etc.
So after she said yes, I took her ring shopping to figure out what she wanted. After the first store, when we got back to the car she expressed her sticker shock and said, "Wouldn't you rather buy an AC/DC? The ring can wait..." She got the ring instead.
Congrats to you & yours!
Wow that's a keeper! And I thought my wife was the only enabler out there...
But seriously dude... no AC in PA??? There just might be more entertaining ways to punish your new wife
