Default Getting the wife into it !

From time to time I have what I believe is "A REALLY GREAT IDEA". Unfortunately my family does not always agree. I was trying to come up with a way that my wife could share the enjoyment that I get from photography. She does not care so much about the camera end of the business so I had a "REALLY GREAT IDEA" that would allow us to work together and grow closer....Needless to say she did not approve of my genius. Of course I had to beta test the idea on my son first.....What do you think of my "REALLY GREAT IDEA"? I call it the "Headlight".

Made me laugh. Love the wife's expression. "Oh God, here we go again."

I thought perhaps she was a visual learner so I even put together a few images of us doing things together as a sales pitch..... She simply does not buy into the practicality of my invention nor does she appreciate my genius.

I would say you are in sooo much trouble (given how thrilled she looked)

Great idea, but I could have told you that the way you set it up, it was almost guaranteed to fail. You should have used a Red Sox batting helmet. If you had, she could not have refused!
