Today I went for a ride with the SO. I noticed her eyeing my streamers. After a while she asks, where'd you get those? I ask her if she wanted some? She says no. Then she asks how much did they cost? I say $14. She says, yeah right you probably paid $25.
What this tells me is she thinks they look good on my bike and wants them, and she thinks they look expensive. The exact reaction I was expecting.
