Coming up is my wedding anniversary (the 25th!) and it will be 4 years I've been married (a new high score!). Well, since I have a new obsession of diecast, and we agreed to a $15 limit, we went out yesterday to pick out my present.
First up, a GL '13 Ford Explorer ($5.99)! Finally got one! I've been looking for a SUV for the diorama, to make it more life-like, and I found it at Meijers. I was planning on getting a Dodge Charger, but all of them had some type of defect, I couldn't believe it! So I grudgingly passed up any more GLs.
Next we went to Walmart (for milk). I thought, 'AutoWorld' and went straight to the pegs, and they were empty! I was about to tell me wife I was disappointed, but she found some AW in the clearance aisle moments before! They were marked down to $5 instead of $5.93. And I found 3 I really liked.
So (3 x $5 )+ $5.99 = $21.99 > $15...dang...
So I bartered with my wife. Since we are planning to move to a new house by the end of the month, I'll refrain from buying any more cars for the next two months. A price to pay, surely, but I really wanted these cars....and I think it was worth it, don't you?
