    So you're getting her a better sleeping bag right? You've told her this haven't you.

    There is no coming back from that undiscovere'd country, from whose bourn no traveller returns. Alas, poor Redhawktx. I knew him, Horatio.

    Some other things that will send a husband to the underworld:

    ...Making ANY change to the settings on the thread injector.
    ...refering to the sewing machine as "the thread injector."
    ...using the washing machine to dye mule tape black.
    ...running a load of whites after you have used the washing machine to dye mule tape black.
    ...joking about using the bathtub to dye mule tape black.
    ...actually using the bathtub for aforementioned purpose the next day.
    ...using the special scissors to cut tyvek.
    ...continuing to call the sewing machine a "thread injector."
    ...disappearing into the garage for "hours on end" to make hammocks or tarps or alcohol stoves or modified Wally-world blue ccf pads or hammock stands or bushbuddy stoves or whoopie slings or tarp tie-outs and etc.
    ...disappearing into the backyard for "hours on end" everytime the weather is nice for the sole purpose of setting up gear and tweaking the setup.
    ...disappearing into the backyard for "hours on end" eveytime the weather is bad for the sole purpose of setting up gear in windy/rainy/lightning-y/hail-y/dark-y conditions.
    ...not putting the children to bed because you are too busy posting on hammock forums.
    ...posting about not putting the children to bed after the third "suggestion" that you should be putting the children to bed.
    ...not putting the children to bed immediately after the Missus goes to the kitchen to grab a meat cleaver so that she can, one last time, "discuss" putting the children to bed...

    Oops! The cleaver means the Missus means business. See you in the undiscovere'd country.

    Tell her it's okay and that you've got another one just like it at your girlfriend's house she can have.

    Light the blue touch paper & stand well back!!

    That sounds like something I would actually say. Or...

    What sleeping bag? You mean that old one of mine I never use? I didn't think you had a sleeping bag. So, you're telling me you want a sleeping bag? Maybe I'll buy you one for
    Christmas.

    All this stuff I have been buying, well you are gonna make me tell you arnt you. Ok but you are ruining the surprise. I wanted to take you camping to remember the night we first met. I know we met at a friends house and went to dinner at that fancy restaurant but that is not how I remember it in my head. You know what if your gonna act that way then I will not order the new sleeping bag I picked out for you then.
