Impulse buying

MY BELOVED: Look at this!

ME: Oooh, I LOVE it! Wow - I wish we knew someone we could buy it for.

MY BELOVED: Mmm.

ME: Well...maybe we should get it?

Big pause while we stare at the box in my hands

ME We could get it and...and...

MY BELOVED: Hope?

ME: Yes. Hope.

So we did. And we are.
