Dear Baxter, My Taste in Gifts Far Exceeds My Husband’s Budget
I love my husband but I also love nice things, like, really nice things. Last week, he asked me what I wanted for our anniversary. I told him if he really wanted to know, I wanted this diamond bracelet we saw window shopping. Anyway, our anniversary was yesterday and he gave me a cheap knockoff of cheap gem stones. I acted like I liked it but I think he could see I was really disappointed. What can I do about this?

I can relate to your husband. I once had a girlfriend that suffered from the same shallow, selfish affliction you seem to have. She had a thing for expensive sports cars. I asked her what she wanted for her birthday and without missing a beat said "something shiny that will go from zero to 160 in less than 10 seconds".. You should have seen the look on her face when I gave her a bathroom scale. My advice to you is to give this guy a break and dump him. Find some rich guy to make miserable. Hope this helps.
