Considering my Wife and I share a single credit/debit card they must
think I'm a real fruit, what with all the Victoria Secret, Motherhood
maternity and etc lately. Since we got married about 6 months ago,
our purchases have tended to be polar opposite. I buy things we need
like new computers, routers and other doohickeys. She buys frivolous
things like groceries (who needs groceries when 5 buck pizza
delivers), and clothes. *sigh* I hope they don't get there marketing
data too screwed up :)
