Deal with the Devil

My husband is dying for a super fancy remote control. Since he got his surround sound working, and said surround ignored our DISH network remote, he's been going mad have to deal with two remotes.

He found a couple of remotes that would work. One is over $500. Can you imagine spending that much on a remote control? Seriously! He found one the one pictured above at a more "reasonable" price. I still think it's insane. I am pretty sure the thing is capable of mind control. It should be, at the price he paid.

He called, begging to buy it yesterday. We have a policy that any purchase over about $40 needs the spouse's approval. I finally gave in and said he could buy it, and I wouldn't tease him at all if I could buy the new Dance Dance Revolution for the Wii.

I regret tacking on the part about not teasing him. I desperately want to tease him for his techno-geekiness. But, alas, I am a woman of my word.

I was laughing so hard at this post because this could be me on any given day. I just don't get it. I'm perfectly happy to line up 3 or 4 remotes to make everything work. Rob drools over those remotes but luckily I've been able to drag him away so far.
