Oh Christmas Tree

“Fiscally responsible.”  That is what my husband said to me.

On our list of things to do today was decorate for Christmas.  We always get a real tree.  Always.  My husband had other ideas for this year.  He did not want to buy an “already dead” tree.  Fake?  Nope – he didn’t want a fake tree either.  He wanted a lemon tree.

Yes! A lemon tree.

Me:  “Hey, you want to decorate this weekend.”

DH: “Sure.  Sounds good.”

Me: “Where are we going to put the tree this year?’

DH: “I’ve been thinking about that….”

Me:  “hmmm”  (I knew something wasn’t right.)

DH: “Why spend money on a Christmas tree when we could get something that will go in our back yard after Christmas?”

Me: silent stare

DH: “I mean, we could decorate a lemon tree.  It would be like a cool Tucson Christmas tree.”

Me: continued staring

DH: “Really, it would be fiscally responsible.”

How the heck am I supposed to decorate that?  Hmph!  Forget about fiscal responsibility!  I need a real Christmas tree.
