Great story. I posted this elsewhere but I had a similar jaw-on-the-floor with my wife.
Back when the 1Dx was announced I started talking to her about my desire to update the 5D2 and started raving about the specs of the 1Dx. In the end she asked, as expected, how much it was going to cost. I told her fully expecting the follow-up "in your dreams buster" comment. Instead she responded with "so I get your old one, right?"
My 1Dx remains on pre-order... (come on Canon!)
That's awesome man!!! Congrats.
