You tell them a few things; you show them in a catalog or magazine; you give them a list. And you get nothing on it? Example: hubby asked what I want. There is this thing called a Mobius bracelet that I've wanted for years. It runs about $80 on sale. It's silver, but somewhat twisted like a ribbon. It has a particular scripture engraved on it (Love is patient, etc.). I know he goes through this catalog whenever it comes in. I even marked it "Me!". The question comes up again a few nights ago and I showed him the bracelet, told him I've wanted it for a while now. He said he didn't like it. Well, fine, but he wouldn't be wearing it. This has happened to me my whole life. Why ask me if you disregard my response? LOL! Surely I'm not alone in this experience.
