Even better... guess who spotted them in Sportsman's Warehouse? "Ooooh DAD! Look at THOSE! PINK Snowshoes!!!" (I probably could have done to add a few more exclamation points)
So WHAT did Dad do? He went right over and looked at the price tag, discovered that these sweet little things were marked down to half the original price, and were the last pair...
Then he promptly displayed his weakness for pink by putting them into the cart!
No kidding, that's just how it happened, only... the pink he has a weakness for, isn't the color of the straps on the snowshoes! edited on 3/16/09 to clarify: (... but the pleading eyes of a pink-clad, dimple faced little girl, who could resist?)
Note: For those of you visiting from DL, there is no innuendo intended here. I apologize for naively using the word pink to describe my daughter who loves that color. Any perverted impressions you gathered are purely your own invention. On a side, I see that some of you think I am a walking contradiction. I hope not. The Jesus I know has seen past my sin to love me in spite of my issues, and loved me enough to pull me out of that mire.
Religion? No. Jesus? Yes! And He loves you too... pink or no pink. That's the truth!
