Give The Perfect Gift.

So I'm driving to work this morning on the Turnpike when all of a sudden I see the Pike's message board a'flashin'.


GIVE THE PERFECT HOLIDAY GIFT!

GIVE THE PERFECT HOLIDAY GIFT!

And I thought...sure. That sounds like a good idea. To give a perfect gift.

And then the sign flashed again:

GIVE A MASSACHUSETTS TURNPIKE GIFT CERTIFICATE!

And now I know what you're all thinking.

You're thinking: "I sure wish I was Wifey come Christmas morning...cuz she's gonna get the perfect gift!"

SO TO SUM UP:
Flashing turnpike signs solve all holiday gift buying angst.

Get Wifey a flashing Turnpike sign.
That way when you drive home, she can send you messages "Bring home Punisher" "Need more Sandman" "We're out of Absolute Watchmen"

Wouldn't it be more like, "You're on the couch again!" or "I put your pillow in the dog house." ?

I want a flashing Turnpike sign.

Wifey gets EVERYTHING.

Kathy said...

well, getting Wifey a turnpike sign might = some couch time.

personally, i'd get a kick out of it and would totally screw w/all the commuters.
"Detour ahead. Turn right, now"

"Stop picking your nose"

I thought Everything was Archie? Isn't it? Archie would be the perfect gift for Wifey.

Can you use the Turnpike gift certificate to buy the flashing sign? That would be cool. Or maybe put it towards your very own tollbooth? That would be a great way to make a little extra cash.

"No sir. I'm sorry. The toll in this lane is $32 dollars. And you need to give me that Big Mac you're eating. And the fries too."

You're supposed to put money in a toll booth? I had a guy throw a bunch of junk from inside his car at me when I was workin' in a toll booth on the Mass Pike! What a jerk!

Wives love anything that can be plugged in....toaster, blender, waffle maker, Nintendo Wii. I saw the survey.

No thanks. I think I got this one covered. You can keep those filthy gifts to yourself.
