| p.2 #6 · What to buy to my discerning wife |
While you might appreciate a how-to book on photography, I think it is safe to assume that you are not my wife. This is a public forum and stranger things have happened, but I am fairly confident in saying that.
lol...hey you never know
My wife has no interest in photography, and she would never refer to it as a hobby of hers. She has an interest in photos. There is a difference.
I see no harm in the gesture. But saying it would not go over well as opposed to saying she has no interest in the subject are different things. If she has no interest in the subject, and you got her a book on the subject, especially a benign one like photography, how does it follow that it would not go over well? At the worst you could return the book, or put it away. The impression I'm getting is that your wife would be offended at the thought of receiving a book like that. Am I reading you correctly?
Try to put yourself in someone else's shoes.
I doubt my feet would fit your wife's shoes :P
I wouldn't be in the dog house, if that's what you're thinking. It would be a roll of the eyes.
But some things among married couples are just understood, if you catch my drift.
Me buying a how-to book on photography would be akin to me buying her a cook book. She has no interest in cooking, and I know that. In fact, she hates cooking. But she loves my cooking. Because I enjoy it.
You don't always get someone cooking lessons or a book, because that would be insensitive to their wants. Sometimes you try and find a solution that fits.
For my wife, it will be a rx100.
