One of the many things I like to do to torture the Handsome Husband while on vacation (even if it is a “working” vacation) is to sign up for out of the ordinary activities. Over the years I’ve learned that if I ask him ahead of time… he will say no… and we will end up hanging out in the hotel room watching t.v. or walking around aimlessly… which drives me nuts!
So in the last few years I’ve changed my approach. Now days… I secretly sign him (us) up for things and PAY IN ADVANCE (so he can’t cancel) and spring it on him at the last-minute.
So this week when I told the HH we were meeting up with another couple after lunch to ride Segways… he freaked out (as if on cue). I just smiled… Because I thought 1 hour’s notice was PLENTY of time for him to prepare. 🙂 And guess what? We had a blast! We didn’t even fall off once.
Moral of the story: Say YES to new experiences.
