    He must have talked to my husband, I get presents like that all the time. Pink flannel pajamas (12th anniversary) clip-on earrings (clip-on? I have pierced ears) red and black striped sleeveless turtleneck (was this just inside the store door?) sponges from Big Lots, etc. Now I give him a picture of what I want. Took me 20 years to do this. (I kept hoping) lol

    Men don’t speak “hint.” Hints go straight over their heads. You want something special, you gotta ask straight out, or just tell em, “For my birthday this year I’d like…”
    I can’t complain, my other half is pretty good at surprises. But then we’ve been married for 32 years, it took him awhile—and I had to learn that the best way to drop a “hint” is to say about once a fortnight for the 3 mos before the event, “What I’d really like to have is this thing.”

    Women who expect their men to pay careful attention to everything they say are always disappointed. It seem that they consider this a sign of love, when actually just putting up with them for any number of years is proof of our love…

    A cracker? I thought it looked like the cover to the now defunct since 2007 Cracked Magazine (The longtime famous Mad Magazine rival).

    It took several years but I finally learned a way to solve some of the problem. When shopping with her I watched what she would show strong interest in. When she stepped away I would slip the Visa card to the salesperson saying what I wanted, come back a few minutes later to sign for it. It always worked when I would surprise her with it. Took a long time to catch me at it and then she got more selective with her “I like that’s”.

    My wife is not beyond telling me flat-out what she wants. I’m the one with the problem. I don’t really want anything unless I actually need it. So when she asks me what I want for whatever occasion, my answer is usually something like, “socks.”

    @orinoco womble

    Well we’ve been married 51 1/2 years and you’d think that by now…….Oblivious, just oblivious! But hey, at least I get what I want, except for my birthday this year he really nailed it! With no hints from me, so there is hope after all!

    Maybe she should have said, “saltine” instead.
