David didn't end up going to his appointment today which put a slight monkey wrench in my plans, but I worked it out. I did it! I went to Sears today and I bought this baby:It's a 32" Samsung HDTV. It has a great picture and was a pretty decent price, $329. I paid another $20 for the HDI cable (which I might not even need because I think my DVR from FiOS came with one). I have it stashed at my friend Maureen's place. She lives very close to us and I asked her on Friday if she could be my co-conspirator. I could have put it in Sarah's closet, but with David home today, there was no way to get it in there without him seeing. So it will sit at Maureen's place until I have a day where I work from home and David goes to his office. I'll nip over and get it and then wrap it and stash it in Sarah's room. I'll wrap the cable up as a present and give that to David. When he looks puzzled - trust me Mark, he will NOT know what it is for - then I will say "O yeah, there is something that goes with that!"
Hee hee hee.
I'm slightly to the left of evil. But my thinking is rather than getting him a bunch of smaller stuff, why not get him this, which he REALLY wants and will make him very happy? So I did it.
And I'm glad.
