The problem is that your wife wants the organic, limited edition bath bombs handmade from essential oils by Tibetan monks and then blessed by the pope. The pope's blessing doesn't come cheaply and so you're on the hook for some overpriced bubble bath.
I still had one problem, though. I don't know karate well enough to split trees with my hands so I needed a chainsaw. I assumed I could find a cheap pile of smoking mechanical rubble, nurse it back to health, and only be set back a couple of bucks. I was shocked to see how expensive a good chainsaw is!

I started shoving words out of my mouth hoping that, like a five speed car with a dead battery, I could just jump start my brain by pushing it down a hill.
