You are in sooo much trouble. You do know that wives can tell if anything has been moved or touched.

I hope you live to tell the tale after your wife finds out. Did they ever televise "That 70's Show" in the UK? If not - there was a really funny episode in which the teenage boy took his father's Corvette out while the father was away. All sorts of awful things happened to the car, and the boy had to go to great lengths to make everything appear as if the car hadn't been moved or even touched, including replacing a hair that had been placed on the steering wheel. Unfortunately, he forgot to change the radio station from the rock that he and the beautiful cheerleader had been listening to back to his father's station, so after all of his work and worry, he was found out anyway.

We will all hold our collective breath until your gift is safely unwrapped at the proper time.

Good luck.

Nice! Be sure you don't get caught; the rule in our house is if you find out what you are getting then it goes back to the store...

You're doomed. As roxhum said -- we notice things.

We could put a single hair on the latch of the case and you'd never notice it.... but we don't have to. We're that good. ;)

Actually I'm worse about giving gifts. I get something awesome for my husband, and I'm the one most likely to spill the beans. I'm horrible. :)


Yeah, that too.

man, you're in deep now. make sure to maintain plausible deniability over the next couple of weeks. in a court of law the burden of proof lies with the prosecution, however we're not talking about a courthouse, let alone a fair trial. forgetting for the moment that you're as guilty as as a bear with honey stuck to his mouth, you're gonna want to avoid making statements like "hmm, I've heard carbon strings are good ...", and certainly no whistling of Hawaiian songs - only Christmas carols from here 'til the finish line.

p.s. your wife got you a uke for Christmas! how sweet :)

Spalted! Maple! Nice!

I say play it as often as you can...its good to make acquaintance with the uke before xmas day so that you can immediately serenade your lovely generous wife upon opening the pressie!!! Makes total sense. Only thinking of her. Being so kind. :-)

Your acting skills are going to have to be on par with Meryl Streep on Christmas morning to get away with this. ;-) Trust me, I have soooo much experience acting my way through opening presents. Practice now.

I did the same thing with a uke that my wife bought for me for my birthday. My teenage son that I thought could keep a secret ratted me out. Let's just say that it was uncomfortable around my house that day!
