made a deal with the wife...

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!
My passion for catching fish is eclipsed only by the fish's passion not to be caught.

Good luck with the yak hunting. You're opening up a whole new world of fishing and observation.

Imagine hitting your own wife with such a low opening bid !
Good luck with the bonus, and the yak when it arrives !
Luck, is when preparation meets opportunity.

I'm laying odds that you end up with both the Apple iBook and the sea kayak within 6 weeks of receipt of your bonus.
