Not because there is anything bad in here, it is just that people younger probably are going to have no clue what this is like from this angle haha.
So my wife has been threatening to throw my yo-yos in the pool because of my apparent obsession with them. Today, she has told me that she actually has! As I stated before, I love it but I don’t throw very much. I’ll go a few days without touching it and usually never spend more than an hour with them at a time and that is rare. I think she hates that I’m on the forums when I’m at work Dj’ing or check them from time to time during the day.
Today I was DJ’ing at a 5/3 Bank Community Appreciate Celebration and they have a photographer who took some pictures of me yoyo’ing which I updated my Facebook status with and put one of them as my avatar on here. That seemed to have slapped her in the face hard! I just don’t understand. On one angle I’m very happy and thankful, not for hurting her feelings, but because she cares enough about me that she thinks she is not number 1 and wants to be number 1 in my life. Which is awesome and amazing. (She is 100% by the way) However, of all of the things (kids and adults have stated this) that I could be doing, really? You have an issue with this? Or does it matter?
From a Christian stand point, anything you put before God is a sin, so if this becomes an obsession, no matter how innocent, is that still good? No. But I really don’t think it has become that point. Sure I’ve spent a few hundred on it, but I still pay my bills and have plenty of money in the bank, so it isn’t a money thing. I’m actually very conservative with our finances. I could buy 20 yo-yos right now and still not have a problem making my mortgage, but I’m very careful how much and when I buy yo-yos and even bought a NQP OD Dietz to save money. I used to be obsessed with World of Warcraft and certainly understand that and glad I don’t do it anymore.
So, I’m here at an event an hour and a half from home, fixed the situation with my wife through texts, but still not sure if my yo-yos are 12 feet under or not! I’m pretty sure they are not, but who knows! Trying to figure out which angle I should take this. My first reaction is that if she shows me my yo-yos in the pool or dripping wet, I’m going to show her a receipt for 10 brand new metal yo-yos. But, I don’t want to go there obviously as that would certainly cause a fight. How do others deal with the “other half” when it comes to yoyo’ing?
In all honesty, I just figured this would be a fun topic to get opinions on and just joke around a bit in a light hearted way. I look forward to hearing from others in this R rated conversation
