Repeat this cycle again as and when necessary.
Then I go out and buy her some flowers
The next day I go out and buy a bottle of Rum
Then I get her more flowers
Then wait a day and go and buy a bottle of Bourbon
Then I get her more flowers
Then I wait another day
And finally then I go out and buy the bottle of Scotch that I wanted to begin with.
So overall it's a good way to keep the bar stocked and the house smelling like flowers
There are two ways of looking at it, rational and irrational.
I'm confused. Which of these is male, and which female, again?
MrTattieheid hit it on the head. When getting into the rational versus irrational realm one must consider:
Male "Rational" = Female "Irrational"
Female "Rational" = Male "Irrational"
And regardless of the situation I find myself on the losing end of any argument when my wife applies her "logic" to the situation .
The downfall of most men is trying to apply logical, rational ideas, what I like to refer to as common sense, to a discussion or situation where a female applies here "rational" line of thought .
Not female bashing here as my wife, and most women, are more deserving of what they have than the lowly males they are saddled with.
Anyway, my recommendation is to buy. The time and injury I suffer from my wife's wrath over the purchase of a new bottle compared to the length of time I enjoy the bottle in question usually falls in favor of the bottle so the net effect is a "win" for me .
I take the compliment if you allow me to confess that I only adopted this. It comes from one of my favourite authors the late Robert A. Heinlein from his classic novel "Time Enough For Love." Contained in this book are the "Notebooks of Lazarus Long" which are full of sound everyday advice.
Like this: Be vary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at the tax collector - and miss.
I chose this example merely for its connection to the subject of our forum here.
There was allegedly a publication of these notebooks as a seperate book but regrettably I was never able to obtain one.
So yes, maybe my wisdom such as it is is just to listen to my betters.

It is easier to beg forgiveness than to get permission. Buy more. Peter

Some people have less brains than money.
I never expected you to admit such a thing about yourself, yet i do understand that you are smart enough to get other peoples' puchases to accomidate your own accumulation.
As for the number of 25 bottles, i must apologize, im just not that enthused yet.
Dammit, should've gone with flowers.
