I wouldn’t have thought him an impulse buyer, but clearly, when it comes to toys, he is. The toys were cell phones, however: we both have new phones, although no longer matching models. Mine is a purple, updated version of my old phone, and he’s got one of the hottest, most expensive phones out there with email and browsing, so he won’t have to haul his behemoth laptop on weekends anymore. I quietly asked if he really thought he needed the bells and whistles, and did another check when we were told the price, but he was on a roll.
