I made a deal with my wife. She wants an Apple iBook. I want a sea kayak. The deal is if my bonus this year exceeds a certain $$$, we buy them. When I gave her the $$$ figure she immediately said ok because she doesn't think I'm going to get that much. But I set it at a low number figuring she wouldn't go along with me anyway and I'd have to raise it, so I was surprised as hell when she said ok right away to my first offer!
