My daughter has been saving her money for several months to buy a portable video game system. Today was the day of the big purchase. My husband took her to the store and they assessed her options. She had enough money for System A. The *newer*, *better*, upgraded System B was on sale, but more expensive. Being the guy that he his, my husband offered to cover the difference and upgrade her to System B. Our daughter turned him down and chose System A, because it is blue - her current favorite color. System B's red case just did not cut it.
When they returned home my husband's only comment was, "she is clearly more your child than mine".
