    Wife: Let's go out.
    Me: (kidding) if you gonna buy me a bass.
    Wife: Ok (I was thinking she was also kidding me).
    After she's done shopping.....(for almost the whole day!)
    Wife: Where is the guitar store?
    Me: (heart beating fast) You're kidding, right?
    Wife: Do I look like I'm kidding?
    Inside the music store
    Me: Are you really serious?
    Wife: Just find your bass or else....
    Me: I want this Black Stingray (I was still thinking she was kidding me)
    Wife: Are you sure you like that? It looks like a black toilet seat with horns hahaha!
    Me: (my heartbeat was now 1000 beats per minute) Even a trumpet player will love a Stingray!
    Wife: Merry Christmas darling!
    And now I have a Stingray! My very first Made in USA bass!
    I kept my MIJ Bacchus and Fender P in their respective hardcase for now.
    Spending my time with this new baby. Still couldn't believe it. I love my wife!

    The toilet seat / Bongo comparison is a stale cliche at this point, but I don't think I ever heard anyone call a Stingray a toilet seat before. But, if she's buying the bass and thinks it looks like a toilet seat, then I'd just agree with her.

    Congrats on the bass - and the wife!

    .... and .... uh .... Merry April Christmas, .....I guess.... :confused:

    My wife went along with me to the guitar store one time. I found a bass that suited my needs at the time. She bought it for me as a Christmas present. That was nice, of course, but it also meant she came home and hid it until Christmas. So, I couldn't play that bass...except when she was out of the house for a while.
