I got the "talkn' to" after a 1D purchase. Well, actually the "talk" came when she saw me cleaning two cameras, instead of the one she new I owned. I had it shipped to work...
Now, I actually converse with her now, and always get the green light after a minor talk.
Slightly off topic; a coworker and friend was giving me grief about my photographic equipment; "Just how many cameras and lenses do you need to take one picture? Do you really need all of those thousand-dollar-lenses?" I went in for the kill: "True, but exactly how many guitars do you own, Paul?" He dropped his head in utter defeat and sputtered "19..."
Touché! Well done, man.
