DH has decided he wants to play the guitar - so he started taking lessons a month or so ago. Today he came home from his lesson with that suspiciously sweet attitude that can only mean one thing - he wants something. My immediate question, "Okay, out with it - what's it going to cost me?". He comes back with, "Well, I don't know yet....." Turns out he saw an amp that he just *has* to have, but is going to be taking his old one in first to see what sort of deal he and the shop owner/instructor can work out.
Here's what made me laugh - my immediate response to that is, "Maybe the better question is, 'What is it going to cost YOU?' -- Is it bigger than a saddle or smaller than a halter?" That is what it has come to here -- tit-for-tat bartering with hobby supplies. (secretly hoping it is bigger than a saddle, there are some VERY nice used ones at the tack shop DD and I discovered a couple of weeks ago, lol)
