We were looking at paddles last night, we have been debating back and forth if we should have one or not, and some of the sites in the States charge more for shipping than the item itself. So I've been looking at Canadian sites, and finally found one yesterday that is verified and reasonable priced.
I was showing my husband the 12 inch and 16 inch paddles. He said he thought that the 12' ones would be way too short, and maybe even the 16'. Sooooo,
He was still unconvinced. So here is where I lost my brain again. I told him he could give it a try out for five swats to see if it seemed long enough to him. REALLY!?!?! Where had all cognisant thought flown to???
So he instructed me to lean over the futon. I thought he'd just do a few trial swings. You know what assuming does... right? In one swoop down came all my layers of padding. And without warning *SNAP* REALLY!?! No warm up? I stood back up and told him what I thought of that... er... or course I did this nicely... *
I got the five spanks alright, followed by more because he really liked the feel of the ruler. I did not expect it to sting so much, but it is one good heavy duty ruler, I should have expected it! Then I couldn't believe his words as I was fighting to stay in place. "FOOT DOWN!" Wow, where did this authoratative person come from? And who let him in the house??? Oh woops, that was me! And I not only let him in, I INVITED him. WOOPS. Doesn't anyone warn you that when you enter DD your brain will not always be involved in the words you speak??? lol
Let's just say my husband was very pleased with the ruler and told me to add it to our
So I guess we now have a ruler in our collection... now what am I going to do for scrapbooking if I can't find a good rubber edged ruler that will stay in place on the page? :( He better hope I can find another one... er... I guess that's... I better hope I can. :)
Oh, and in the end, he agrees, anything longer than the 16' paddles would be a flat out weapon. So glad he didn't make me look at the 18' and 20' ones!
