My Wife Displeased Because of My Actions

I Totally Agree

I won't even try to justify my actions

I know better

I told my wife

I will write you my reasoning

Instead of you and I hashing it out

When you went to picked me up last night

Judgement day

My shift was over

I knew as soon as I rounded the corner with the tote

I seen your head drop down

I could hear your words

Really !

I had a cute little smile on my face

Like hi I am so glad to see you too

I love you

But really she said in a very negative tone

I told my manager (jokingly)

Are you going to be around later

I might need a ride home

My wife is not happy with me

My manager agreed

She is giving you the stink eye

My manager didn't even know I liked books

So how could he understand my love for books

As I carried my books out to the car

I could hear my wife say

It is Christmas

We have bills to pay

We have gifts to buy

I am looking to save money

Here you go and spend it

I look into her eyes

Ready to tell her how important these books mean not only to me

But to us

Then I decided now is not the time

I better hold my tongue

So on the hour and a half ride home

We talked about our days at work

When she would hint ...

So I dropped you off and then...

Wanting me to spill the beans

I came right out and said

I will explain it in a letter later

It is a very sensitive subject at the moment

I don't think any answer is a good answer

When I was buying the books

I was smart enough to weigh the options

I pictured what my wife would say

Then some how I pushed it far from my mind

Because this is what I needed to do

At this very moment

Inexplicably

I have come across words that I am thinking

That what I did was uncouth

These words I have never used before in my life

I am not sure they are in the right text

They are the best description I am feeling at this moment

Right wrong or other wise

The sun was shining bright today

I never got outside to enjoy it

The sun is setting now

The weather is about forty degrees outside

I woke up the latest I remember

At two thirty in the afternoon

I stayed up till a little after five in the morning looking at all the different books I bought

So it was really only a little over eight hours sleep

I get about five to seven on any given night

I poured myself a bowl of life cereal

The cereal that Mikey likes

I just noticed Mikey isn't even on the box no more

So Mikey can't even help me

I had a quick thought

Us Mikes have to stick together

Even he wanted no part of this

As I analyze my actions

Carefully considering what I did

Did I act in haste

Nobody was pushing me

Nobody was forcing me

I had more time to read the covers over and over

I had my phone ready and I did take some pictures

Why did my plan fail this time

My wife tells me all the time

Shop with your eyes not your wallet

It isn't the same

It works 99.9 percent of the time

My mood slowly changes after a few hours at work

I soon forget what I wanted and desired

This was the most books I have bought at one time for years

I remember turning to another coworker in the past

When I bought only five books

He said to me

Your wife is going to kill you

If you want to spend money

Give me the money

He doesn't understand why someone would buy one book

When you can go to a library

All the free books you can borrow

I tried to explain

It's not the same

These titles are out of print and somebody else loved these books

They could of been in their home for years

It meant something to them and I feel them with me when I read the books

They owned them before me

It could of been their favorite book

They could of paid full price

I saved a lot by waiting

These books give me ideas

These ideas make me happy

It's not about making money

It is deeper than that

It is about being happy

Understanding life and the world around us

How business and work come together

Fine tuning all the things we find a passion for

Finding people that enjoy the same things we like

If not our friends, family or coworkers

Then we have to search

Expand our horizons across the globe

What better way than through a book

Sharing the same interests and the same desire

These people went one step farther

They took what was in their head

Then took endless hours to make sense of it all

Putting their hard earned money at stake

To tell the world what they believe

In hopes that it will help someone

Better live and understand their own life
