boys and their toys

I am guessing that every one of you have an item that was brought into your marriage/relationship that your significant other just wouldn't get rid of.
Let me introduce you to mine...
His name is Master Shake, yes he is a stuffed animal of a milk shake.
Absolutely ridiculous in my book. He is part of a cartoon trio who's show is called Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
I can handle most silly boy things. He may have a $100 light saber that is pretty dang realistic and I understand why he likes that, he grew up with it. I however do not understand this stuffed animal and why every time I try to get rid of it he absolutely refuses to let me. His biggest reason is he wants to keep it because his brother gave it to him. I guarantee that his brother will give him many more stupid gifts in this lifetime so why not get rid of this one?

Well with all the cleaning and organizing going on Master Shake never had a chance. He made the trip to Goodwill today! My husband had a pretty good idea I was up to something when we left the house. I finally showed him the source of my happiness as we pulled up to drop of the trunk full of stuff at Goodwill. He never made it back into the car though!!

What item does your husband/boyfriend refuse to get rid of?

This is too funny! I would definitely find a hiding place for this toy until he forgot about it and most likely get rid of it. :)

Haha, that's great! And I know how you feel. Although we don't have stuffed animal milkshakes lying around, my husband absolutely REFUSES to get rid of his 10+ year old Oakley wallet made of Kevlar that once had Velcro on it to hold it shut. While he removed the Velcro to make it "more grown up", I'm not sure he's going to get a bullet to the butt anytime soon, so the Kevlar must go!!! Thanks for the wonderful idea (Goodwill!).

The husband has to many and is always bringing home more. This week in fact he purchased a stuffed monkey in a cape from WOOT.com. His excuse - its a monkey, with a cape, AND it screeches. I'll let him play with it for a month and toss it.

Ha! It's not what mine won't get rid of...it is what he wants to get. He wants to get a KEGORATOR and put it in our computer room. It just so happens to share a wall with our living room. Yes..he wants to drill a hole thru the wall, and drag the tap thru it. I refuse lol....
