Now normally this would have alarm bells going off in my head because even I get that a statement like that is code for Kim saying she had come all this way to spend time with me and I was ignoring her.
But not this time ...
You see I had recently been introduced to the 'how do you put a giraffe in the fridge' quiz, and so I knew that I tended to overthink things (if you don't know what I'm talking about do the quiz - it's quick) and secondly Kim had just recently made the point to me that she is a pretty straight shooter and that she calls a dog a dog and a spade a spade.
So, I reasoned, if Kim had said she wants me to get another laptop so she can send me messages when she comes around to visit ... well that must mean she wants me to get a laptop so she can send me messages when she comes around to visit.
So I bought her one for Valentines Day ... and I didn't stint either ... I went the full hog and bought her a beautiful new 13" Macbook Pro with retina display ...
.. Yea, I probably don't need to say anything else other than that sometimes a dog isn't a dog, a spade isn't a spade and a Macbook Pro is not what your girlfriend wants for Valentines Day.
If however anyone reading this has a second hand entry level ocean ski that they might be interested in trading for a hardly used (and apparently ridiculously expensive) Macbook Pro .... apparently we'd be very interested.
