.... as soon as I see Santa's tail lights

My X-Mas bonus is burning a hole in my pocket! I want to go buy me a mini RIGHT NOW but figure I better at least wait until Santa comes and goes. You never know, and I'd hate to ruin my X-Mas if a mini were to happen to show up under my tree. If Christmas Day comes and goes and there is still no mini ... you can bet your azz I will be chasing Santa's tail lights all the way to my local BGE dealer to make my purchase on a mini! =))

    Make sure to smile, no matter how much it hurts, if you get a tie.
    Great that you have a backup path!

    But she did get run over by one.

    Even with too much eggnog, hit-and-run is always a crime.

    This is easily solved by saying, "Honey, I'm going to go pick up a mini since I need it for the Christmas dinner cook."

    Spouse freaks out and says no => You got a mini waiting already
    Spouse doesn't say anything => Go to the dealer before they close and pick it up

    Mine calls me names and throws it at me.

    You really need to try and remove yourself from an abusive relationship like that

    I'm feeling somewhat the same. I'm saddened and embarrassed by how little I have used my Large since I got it early this year. Less than 10 times and my logic is (there's just me and my wife) I'd be more likely to fire up a mini more frequently. Good luck on waking to a rotund piece of green porcelain under your tree.

    Oh, I'm using the heck outta my XL! I just feel that the nights I don't want to fire my XL ... I could at least cook a little sumthin sumthin on the Mini. I really think the Mini would get lotsa use just for sides around my house. Whole baked potatoes, Asparagus, Mixed veggies, Burgers, etc., etc. I eventually would like a Medium also. :D I just think the Mini should come 1st because it will see more use.
