I bought myself a Bopit Extreme2 from a consignment store and I am ecstatic. I loved the Bopit when I was little and have wanted another one for 10 years. Kind of a long time to want something so silly and simple.
Anyway…my husband refused to let me get one. If I touched one at Walmart he would get mad at make me put it down or he’s put it on a high shelf after taking it from me. Never would even let me use it for a minute. I asked for one for Christmas…tried to but myself one etc….but I was forbidden to use or have one.
I promised not to play when he was home, or if the house was dirty etc. But it didn’t matter…it was a unneeded distraction that I was not allowed. At first I thought it was silly and kinda cute how he was acting….after all what adult would tell their girlfriend, then fiance then finally wife that they couldn’t have a simple toy. Didn’t make since. Especially when I was buying him playstation 3s (four of them to be exact….because he kept pawning them for drugs or gas money) and 60 dollar games first that he would play for 8 hours straight, sit at home and not work or clean. In fact the house was usually dirtier when I came home.
So…he couldn’t have been serious about me not having a Bopit…but he was.
Anyway….the point is I finally got one. And in such a simple way it makes me happy. I don’t play it much…maybe 5 to 10 minutes 3 days a week. But having it…the freedom it represents is want makes me smile. I didn’t even have to have a good reason for getting it besides that fact I wanted it.
