As a child, do you remember that feeling of excitement, knowing that your parents were taking you to a toy store? Do you remember barely staying still in the car seat on the way there, as you imagine the sights and sounds you would see? Do you remember trying in vain to be 100% sure of what toy you knew you absolutely had to have, shaking off any thoughts of certainty because you knew there were going to be so much more new toys beyond what you expected?
Childhood was certainly a time of discovery and excitement. However, don’t be surprised if you get the same sort of reaction from a grown man when you give him the chance the visit a hardware outlet. You probably won’t see him singing songs of famous cartoons made into toys, nor would you see him hopping or skipping (unless you told him you were going to join him, and if he knew you had a wallet full of money), but you would definitely see that look of excitement in his face.
See, a hardware outlet is like a veritable sanctuary for boys and men to reflect and rediscover their gruff manliness. As soon as you take him through the doors, it is almost always likely that even if he has a certain shopping list to fill, you can expect him to take just a few extra minutes than usual to pause and look around. Like a child, he would be looking at construction tools and car accessories, holding them with a hope that you could afford them. He would take the time to take notice of the whimsical combination of scents, from varnish to paint samples to freshly cut wood. Watch him as he goes on and on about how you would save a whole lot more on electricity if you chose this bulb over that other one you had in the house. See the twinkle in his eyes as he lets out that sigh of combined awe and yearning at all the electric drills and circular saws on display.
If you want a quick boost for your man, take him to a hardware outlet.
