    I told my wife "Because you won't let me have that many girlfriends!!!"
  7. I used to say *Women- can't live them, can't sell them into slavery*
    Of course that's not entirely true...

    next time just smack her and say "women get me a beer"
  9. Tell her you're gonna miss her.

  10. See if I had a girlfriend and asked her this... she'd probably ask me back the same question, lol!
  11. "why do you have so many questions?'

    The problem is, if she is like my wife, each pair of her shoes probably cost more than each one of your basses...

    Yup. I know two different women EACH of which owns more than 300 pairs of shoes. Not only that they BOTH have a purse collection that matches each pair of shoes!

    Funny thing was during the press thing over Imelda Marcos and her 1000 pairs of shoes, one of them got guilty and trimmed the collection to a mere 200 pairs of shoes! I think it's back up where it was again.

    Man, measured by my bass collection I have a LONG way to go to measure up!

    You guys know some strange women. Maybe you should hang with a different crowd. My girlfriend never asks why I have more than one bass. Well, when we were first going out she did, but I explained why and she thought my answer made perfect sense. She even understood, upon hearing, why I splurged for a tube amp. I was a musician when she met me, and so it's not a big deal to her for me to spend money on bass stuff, as that's what I've spent it on as long as she's known me.

    She has.... I think like five or six pairs of shoes? I don't know. She owns a couple pairs of nice shoes and a couple pairs of sneakers. And some hiking boots I think. Not many.

    Interesting; I have around 35 basses and my wife told me that as far as she is concerned I can have all the basses I want, citing the fact that I don't smoke, drink, gamble, cheat, carouse, subject her to any kind of abuse, and provide well as a husband. She even roadies for me at gigs and takes photos for the band; it's good to have a partner that is totally supportive, and I respond in kind to her endeavors as well.

    Without counting, I own at least 10 pair of western boots, probably that many pairs of sneakers, probably 10 or so pairs of dress shoes, and 30 basses. I don't have a wife.
