When you met, the whole opposites attract thing was fun and exciting. Every day was an adventure as you introduced him to swing dancing and he took you rock climbing. Life was thrilling and you were both open to new, amazing experiences.
But over the years, you got over it. Now your interests are back to being your own. He laughs when you suggest a weekend theater getaway, and you roll your eyes when he brings up camping.
Most the time you’re perfectly fine with this new, “not on your life” arrangement for sharing interests, but every once in a while his pouting–and out-of-season flannel–actually gets to you and you briefly consider roughing it. Don’t give in to that moment of weakness. Remember the ground is still hard and the outdoors are still crawling with uninvited critters just burning to get into your tent.
Instead, give him a thrilling camping experience right from inside your own home. Here’s how…
Start the day out with some fishing…in the bathroom.
While he’s dropping a deuce he can reel in the catch of the day with the Hook, Line and Stinker toilet fishing set.
And since camping isn’t really camping without some sporty gear that’s in no way useful in real life, hook him up with some rock-climbing goodness with the Carabiner Corkscrew.
He may not be scaling and mountains, but he might just be inspired to trudge the stairs to and from the wine cellar.
From the comfort of his faux leather recliner, he can watch some boring exciting fishing show while checking out nature with his trusty Binocular Flask at his side.
After a few good pulls, he’ll start to think he’s really there.
When it’s time to eat, serve him some sandwiches in Lunch Bugs Sandwich Bags so he can get that virtual thrill of having beetles on his roast beef.
Need to cut some meat? Let him hack away at his steak with a Steak Saw. You don’t get much more manly than that.
At bedtime, toss a sleeping bag on his side of your queen sized, complete with Six Foot Fake Snake inside.
When he lays his head down on the Log Pillow Head Rest, he’ll feel like he’s been camping all day, and you never have to leave the central air behind.
