View Full Version : Is My Wife Freakin' INSANE?

My wife is off at bell choir practice at church right now. She spent quite a bit of time on the computer this morning....I asked what she was doing....she said you'll see...

Now I know she is looking to get a new tattoo....evidently when my sister completes her chemo and radiation for her breast cancer.... and is healthy enough....she and Angie are going to get tattoos together...maybe even my daughter and nieces...my sister and daughter are the only ones that don't have one.

She has been looking for one on the internet...mostly "crosses" or "yoga" types...I figured that's what it was she was doing...

NOPE!...I received this e-mail a few minutes ago ~


Yes--- it is me and this is probably the tackiest email I have ever sent. But I will be turning 50 very soon and with age comes the loss of social filters, a loss of decorum. I am getting an early start on being an obnoxious old lady.
If you are wonder what gift to give me for my 50th birthday, I have included a few suggestions below -- just scroll down. I've decided to be vocal this year, since I usually am a very quiet and unassuming person.
Maybe y'all can pool your resources...

For my family members I have not notified....

Party on Jan. 9, 2010 to celebrate my half-century milestone!!


I love my family!!

WHAT!!???

Are you kidding me BABE?

There was some "i-cons" that failed to show up following the unassuming person...

And following the post was 7 Tiffany necklaces priced from $100-$175 that we could choose from....

That just blows my e-book idea right out of the water!!!! :mad:

My kids will get a kick out of this but I can't wait to hear what her sister's have to say.....:dizzy:

I can guarantee you...this e-mail will NEVER DIE in her family....

What do you gals think about this?

Gary, when your sister gets ready for radiation, she will be tatooed. I have tatoos complements of the radiology department. They look a lot like blackheads, though.

Im confused. Is it the tone of the email/how it is written, what presents she is requesting, or the fact that she is throwing a party without checking with you first that is wierding you out? Personally, i think the only strange thing is that she didnt check with you first. I mean, is the party gonna be at your house?

I think she is saying that normally she is unassuming and just accepts whatever gifts she gets but now, as she gets older, she is becoming more assertive and wants gifts that she actually wants so she is hoping people will pool their resources and give a group gift instead of cheaper gifts that she has no use for. This makes perfect sense to me. I have so much crap that has accumulated in my apartment that getting more crap i dont need is kinda stressful. I'm still in the nice/young/naive stage of being happy and excited to get a gift but then, later, i think: what the heck am i gonna do with this? I think she is just acting on a sentiment that many of us have at some point during gift exchanges.

Gary, I'm so glad you're a part of 3FC, I do love reading your posts.

yes, 50th bday par-tay! (I should start planning now, I have 5 years to think of what I want for that milestone)

yes, tiffany necklace (INDULGE). and I'd suggest getting her something great in addition to that, to dwarf her original splurge desire :) She will love you for it.

I don't tattoo, but the idea sounds bonding and positive

Well BARGOO I am sure you will be twins...she has been told to expect quite a bit starting the beginning of next year..:hug:

Im confused.Welcome to my world ;) Is it the tone of the email/how it is written, what presents she is requesting, or the fact that she is throwing a party without checking with you firstthis happens frequently...not telling me "OUR" plans.. that is wierding you out? Personally, i think the only strange thing is that she didnt check with you first. I mean, is the party gonna be at your house? there is always a party at my house...no problem..

I think she is saying that normally she is unassuming and just accepts whatever giftsI can tell you we "hear" about it ;) she gets but now, as she gets older,she is in denial she is becoming more assertive and wants gifts that she actually wants so she is hoping people will pool their resources and give a group gift instead of cheaper gifts that she has no use for.where is the fun in that?

She is not surprising me with her party..we are planning it together...well...she is planning it...but...we are together...;)

I thought my e-book was the perfect gift for a 50th birthday....My daughter/kidnapper and step-d are in your neighborhood today...brrrr

I tried to post the link of the necklaces but they won't come up....sorry...I could post the # of them if anyone is really interested...

FWIW, I really liked the idea of the Kindle/eReader, too. When I read your post asking about it, it sounded like you'd spend some time finding something she'd use a lot and really enjoy.

I'd never suggest you get it INSTEAD of the necklace she's asked for, but any chance you can get her both gifts? Maybe surprise her with the Kindle when the two of you are celebrating by yourselves?

It would be kind of extravagant, but she's only going to turn 50 once....

don't you love how we all have your wife's back, EZ? She may be insane- but it might be the only way she has in keeping up with her wonderful husband! :)

Maybe this is her way of making it clear that she would really really really not like to see any of that "over the hill" and graveyard themed crap at her party? A preemptive strike, perhaps?? :)

So when people ask her... "How do you live with him?"...it's a bad thing? :)

Oh I TOTALLY figured that out many years ago when I bought her toaster (among other things...give me a little credit) for our first Christmas!

Yes you do. Forget wild women. Worthy women do ;)

A couple of years ago we went to a "50's Roast" for my brother in law...when we left she told me...:mad: Don't you even THINK about having something like that for me :mad:....I already knew...I already knew....;)

Oh <something>, I might have to move to a different country and find all new friends and family if I ever got roasted. After they used the jaws of life to extract me from whatever hole I found to jam myself into.

EZ, I was reading your posts in this thread. Your wife is being aggressive for a very emotionally fragile turning point. That is good in a way. I would get her the least expensive and more meaningful necklace, AND give her the e-book too.

Women are weird. We WANT to tell you what we want, and YOU should get it, but at the same time, WE WANT you to use your head and heart and give us a gift THOUGHT OF completely by you.

The tatoo thing sounds like she really wants to bond with her sister. But, she is also fitting a part of her identity crisis into it. It is wild/young to go get tattoos.

about the dog thing...that gives me hope. Because I am hitting my SO up with the idea of a dog for my son. I want a boston terrier. And he is LIKE "There is no way you are going to get a dog".

I tried one time with a beagle mix puppy. He threatened to leave me! Here we go again. I want a puppy so oooooo BAD for me and DS. (that puppy was a rotten little stinker--that cried/whined all day--it was free. I will have to pay for a good one, one that has the characteristics and breed I desire-- and we are poor)

Kiddo, this would be her third tattoo...she knows the pain well...she tried 3 sessions to cover one up before...just re-did it instead.

I would much rather buy someone something that they actually want and have asked for. I don't see the problem.

I solved the problem of buying "the wrong" gift years ago...I give her $$$ instead....good luck in that marathon too! We did ours in 2001 :)

Is she really worth 2 gifts? ;)

Women are weird. Please repeat that so she can hear you! We WANT to tell you what we want, and YOU should get it, but at the same time, WE WANT you to use your head and heart and give us a gift THOUGHT OF completely by you.

We want...we want...we want...THAT'S what Ive been saying!

The tatoo thing sounds like she really wants to bond with her sister. But, she is also fitting a part of her identity crisis into it. It is wild/young to go get tattoos.

This tattoo would be with my sister....she started this wild tattoo thing 15 years ago....when she turned the "emotional" 35...:D

about the dog thing...that gives me hope. Because I am hitting my SO up with the idea of a dog for my son. I want a boston terrier. And he is LIKE "There is no way you are going to get a dog".

I always give her the vet bill...she always gives it back...

I tried one time with a beagle mix puppy. He threatened to leave me! Here we go again. I want a puppy so oooooo BAD for me and DS. (that puppy was a rotten little stinker--that cried/whined all day--it was free. I will have to pay for a good one, one that has the characteristics and breed I desire-- and we are poor)

You all know how much I enjoy my stinky ~ spoiled rotten ~ expensive dogs!
