Husband lied to me. He told me that he had bought me a set of Skull Candy headphones and we were just waiting for them to arrive in the post. He didn’t.
He bought me this instead:
That, ladies and gentlemen, is a 30lb recurve bow. I was really into archery when I was a youngster and I’ve been wanting to get back into it for a long while. Every time we go to Bass Pro Shops, Husband very indulgently waits while I spend at least half an hour drooling over archery supplies that I can’t afford. I’m also somewhat convinced that he has a secret goal to “one up” me every birthday. Our birthdays are 13 days apart and every year I think I’ve gotten him a great present. And then he gives me an iMac. Or a new bow. And makes my “video game I know he wants and computer software” gift look completely lame in comparison. *sigh*
I was so excited about this present, I might have derped. Hard…
Seriously, though, she’s gorgeous and I absolutely love her.
Unfortunately, every single place that sells feather fletched arrows is either a) sold out or b) closed on Monday. So I have to wait until tomorrow to buy arrows. Oh well, I think I’ll live.
Update: Viking Archery in Canyon Lake had the arrows I needed and I spent about an hour talking shop with the dude who owns the shop. He’s lovely and they’re very, very reasonably priced for just about everything they sell. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone in the San Antonio area.
