So, I’m getting married. (I’m told the ladies have scheduled a mourning session for later that afternoon.) We’re doing the destination wedding gig and going super casual - I’m wearing a dark brown vested suit and she’s wearing a tea-length ivory dress.
I’m also getting a titanium wedding band, since a lot of metals cause irritation issues (and, hey, $20 wedding band). The aforementioned irritation also lead me to wear a pocket watch instead of a wristwatch.
The girl has bemoaned that she can’t buy me a fancy pocket watch for the wedding because I already have several watches. It occurred to me that a double albert watch chain for the vested suit that matches my wedding band might be a good thing to desire out loud. Before I send her off on a wild goose chase, I looked around and couldn’t find any of the fancy watch chains being produced in titanium.
That’s true, and it’s an option. The main reason I’m asking is because she’s been giving me a bit of a hard time on how hard I am to buy gifts for and has mentioned wanting to get me a watch a couple of times, except that I already have a couple, and grumble what a bad guy I am. So if there was a way for me to help her maintain her original idea that she just didn’t know about, I’d like to plant the bug in her ear. (Plus, it would match my wedding band and I’m told that girls find such things adorable, mainly by her.)
Also, wristwatches are for suckers (and it’s usually the button on the stem that gives me the most trouble so since those are stock parts it’s sometimes a crapshoot whether the all-titanium watch is actually all-titanium).
You do realise that the Titianium pocket watch chain is going to cost your fiancee her hair, and those combs you buy for her with the proceeds of the pawned pocket watch are going to be useless for a while…
