Well, we went looking at computer monitors at Nebraska Furniture Mart. I never thought that Lloyd could out-Mart me. I went looking at all their cool stuff while he stood in a trance in front of a bank of monitors, looking stoic. Apparently he has been thinking about this decision for quite a while, and had his choices narrowed down to six. NFM had three of those choices, so it took him two and a half hours to scrutinize their features: number of ports / does it have t.v. or not / resolution / blah blah blah blah blah. (I saw some cool toasters! Thanks for asking.)
When I’d check in on him every fifteen minutes to make sure he was breathing, he’s say, “Look at these. Which one looks better to you?”
Me: “That one. It’s red.”
Lloyd: “No. The picture on the screen.”
Me: “The pictures look identical. Get the red one.”
Lloyd: “What do you think about the dot pitch resolution?”
Me: “Ooo! Is that a toaster?”
We took a lunch break at the Burger King inside NFM, and I just have to say that it is genius for large furniture stores to take care of all your physical needs so you never have to leave. We could eat, pee and shower there. Genius.
Anyway, after lunch Lloyd asked, “Is there a clearance section here?” By that time I had already visited it three times, so I took him back there where we found a GIANT monitor that Lloyd had never added to his Original Six lineup because of it’s prohibitive price. It was marked down 65%, so he chose that one. Good thing he stared at those others for so long, right?
Y’know, looking back on the day, I don’t think that I was supposed to shower there.
