Yeah! Good call :)

Don't make a big deal of it and chances are she won't either :)

That's the hope anyway :)

"This isn't new...its been in the <attic, basement, shed, garage, other place she doesn't often go> for years!"

Either that, or put a piece of jewlery with a big diamond ring on top, you know - distract her with shiny stuff :facepalm:

Lie .... Say you got it at a ridiculously low sale price and couldn't pass it up .
OR lie .. Check out what I got off buddy at work for 50 bucks .
OR lie .. get a piece of paper ... write .. ( FREE - WORKS GOOD ) ... and tape it to the side .
And if that doesn't work , deny everything .
fermenter : high gravity fermented Vienna Lager , re-fermenting with abbey ale yeast . kinda experiment .
