Ever Heard of the Mothers' Day Fairy??

I've been bugging my husband for a Garmin Forerunner for the past few weeks, justifying its use on many levels. He's rebuttled my list of reasons by simply saying that he doesn't think I need one since he "ran for 5 years without one." Well I bet if they had been invented back in his high school days, being the gadget freak that he is, he sure would have had one!

Anyway, with tomorrow being pay day and all, I casually sent him a link of some Garmins on ebay. He replied back with "Maybe if you ask the Mothers' Day Fairy nicely, she will bring you one." I didn't know such a fairy existed, but you can bet your @$$ I'll be buttering "her" up tonight! ;)

LOL! I love it. I've been consulting with the Mothers' Day Fairy recently too. To not do so as a married man is to court disaster.

Hilarious! Sounds like something my hubby would say to me :) Hope that Fairy brings you a pretty little Garmin!

I hope the Mother's Day Fairy visits!! You'll love having a Garmin. Just tell him that people used to get by without cars, too, and then ask him if he really "needs" one!

my dad doesn't understand the gadget thing, having run his marathon in 1982, far before garmin, etc. but I agree, bet he's already got one for you. :D
