Mother's Day Request


This is the Nike Zoom Vermoo shoe. Its awesome for running. I have had a pair for over two years. I got the pair after a hugh fight with my DH about finding a job. To which, I went looking for one while he worked from home.
They are the best dang running shoe I have ever ran in during my life time. I have had a lot of running shoes. My mother firmly believed in having good support shoes for me as I grew. Since, I grew incredibly tall for my age. Thank God, I finally stopped growing.
So, the dreaded question came from my DH. I don't think he realizes that he tenses up when he asks what I want for mother's day. I turned to him, and gave a home simpson look of duh. You haven't figured it out yet. He goes I can't read minds, but I can read your expression like I totally missed something. Uh, uh....I want a new pair of nike zoom vermoo running shoes instead of a small gift and going out to eat dude. Are you sure that's what you want? Duh, are you ears turned on, hon? I swear you are being like a computer with a virus.
YES, I WANT THESE SHOES. ITS BEEN TWO YEARS OVER A DOZEN 5K RACES, AND A BUNCH OF 10 K TRAINING RACES. THE SUPPORT SYSTEM IS TOTALLY BLOWN IN CURRENT PAIR.

He threw his hands up, enough. I get the point. You know we could try a cheaper pair.

I reply, NO but hell no! tried it. No happening ever again.

You know they are expensive.

Yup. That's why I am asking you to do something worth while and get them for mother's day. THe only other time of year I actually get to hand pick out what I want for a gift.

Okay, okay, we will go to the Nike store this weekend and get them. I get your point.

Maybe, he should have not introduced me to the most awesome shoes around for running. Its gonna hurt his wallet this weekend. Though, they will last me another two years.

Way to go Nike.

BTW, nike is not paying me for this. This from my own experience with running shoes. Though it would be nice if Nike would send me a discount coupon for their shoes considering they cost two arms and two legs, plus enternal organs to pay for them.

Well the cake looks yum yum yum. But I like your gift request best. I think I need to ask for something like that. Although today I ordered a cusinart food processor (using my air miles rewards) and I counting that as MY mother's day gift. Hehe. Have a great Mother's Day. You deserve it!
