"A funny thing happened to me on my way to Christmas one year."
A friend of mine asked me: "There is a garage sale where they have two presses, they are Herter's, a bench and a ton of other stuff all for $40. Should I buy it? Is it a good deal?"
So, To help a friend out, I went on ebay to "watch" what the Herter's press went for to find out if he got a good deal or not. Well, the wife "hacked" into my ebay account to see what I was "watching" and thought to win that item and surprise me for Christmas. Well, imagine how hard I had to try to be thankful for a press that is older than the hills, won't work with any of the shell holders that I currently own, and no room on my bench to try to impress her with how much I needed the thing!
I "manned up" and told her the truth: "Honey, nice gesture but................. I really was just watching it for a friend."
Worst thing was, had I really wanted it, I would have been bidding against myself, kinda! CRAZY! (but what a woman!)
Maybe I should have a "karma" and get that thing out from under my bench!
