Well, I have no other vices...

I haven't had alcohol in decades. Same with cigarettes, none of them in just short of 50 years. I have never cheated on my wife, other than a little flirty banter with Catie at the gym desk.

But I do like to collect stuff. Oy, vey, I hope my wife hasn't found this drawer!

I find that having a collecting 'vice' to be much more acceptable to many women, versus some the things you mention in your opening paragraph, as long as they cannot prove any differently.

Well, as with most of the things in my life, there's a "dirty little secret."

As for flirting with Catie, my wife approves of it and encourages me. Let me explain.

To get into the "good classes" like 'Spin' and 'Hot Yoga,' you need a card. It's so cut-throat that people have "their own bikes" staked out. If you take someone's bike, it's like suburban civil war.

These little plastic tickets are behind the front check-in desk, where Catie works. I use a little schmooze, and greet Catie with something like, "Where have you been all my life--let's run until the divorce attorneys find us..."

Catie, laughs, blushes, and then hands two tickets to my wife.

In essence, my wife is pimping me...

Her own? Well, sort of...

She steals my stuff. She stole an SW 360PD. Same with these Flucum Framelocks. She wanted a special one--in pastel green.

She'll buy fancy boots, I put the Rossi Boot Wax on them and buff them.

I bought the first SW 60 knife. She slipped it into her jeans before the styrofoam peanuts finished hitting the floor.

Have I properly demonstrated "her collection"?

Now about getting a Fulcrum Framelock. It's a good thing I rep for Blue Ridge and pay only wholesale...
