The first store was closed. The second store didn't have what I was looking for. By the time we arrived at the third store the excitement of another camera purchase almost passed.
Thanks to the knowledgeable camera rep, the third store ended up being quite successful. Aside from a hint that the Canon 7D may find its way under the Christmas tree, the three hour visit ended with a bribe of six balloons; along with a pocket camera, memory card, bag, battery, and video game purchase.
"Wow!" I told my husband when we got in the car. "The kids were really good in the store, I'm impressed."
"Babe, are you kidding me?" My husband laughed. "I was the blocker! They would come at you and I'd kick them back into play."
"You were protecting your goalie!" I laughed hysterically as I returned to reality. "You're right, that sounds more accurate. Great teamwork!"
Just one of many ways my husband keeps me sane.
