DUCT TAPE HAPPY?




I INVESTED IN A CRICUT EXPRESSION 2, 5TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION A FEW YEARS AGO.  I COULDN'T STAND THE GREEN END CAPS AND WAS READY TO BUY THE PURPLE REPLACEMENT ONES.  I WOULD HAVE  BEEN "SETTLING" BECAUSE IT WAS CLOSE TO WHAT I WANTED BUT NOT EVERYTHING.(DON'T GET ME WRONG-I LOVE PURPLE BUT PURPLE IS NOT MY FAVORITE COLOR.  CRICUT EVEN CAME OUT WITH A  MACHINE THAT HAD TEAL END CAPS AND I SERIOUSLY THOUGHT ABOUT PURCHASING THAT ONE BUT MY HUSBAND POINTED OUT THAT IT WAS NOT THE SMARTEST THING.I TRIED TO MAKE IT SOUND LIKE I REALLY NEEDED IT BECAUSE IT WAS MY FAVORITE COLOR! HE STILL SAID NO AND LOGICALLY POINTED OUT THE REASONS THAT THIS WOULD NOT BE ACCEPTABLE-ESPECIALLY FOR ME!!)  MY HUSBAND SUGGESTED THAT THE LIME GREEN ENDS SHOULD BE COVERED WITH THE DUCT TAPE THAT I REALLY REALLY LIKED. THIS SOLUTION GAVE THE PERSONALITY I WANTED, INCLUDED MY FAVORITE COLOR, AND SAVED $$. I DID NOT FEEL LIKE I WAS "SETTLING". WELL, I AM NOW OBSSESSED WITH THIS.  I HAVE NOW COVERED MY TOOL CASE.  I DON'T HAVE TO STARE AT A LIME GREEN CASE THAT I HAPPEN TO USE QUITE FREQUENTLY.  WHY STOP AT JUST THE CASE?  ALL OF MY TOOLS ARE LIME GREEN-I'VE ONLY WRAPPED THE ONE I USE THE MOST SO FAR...I HAVE EVEN WRAPPED MY IPHONE CHARGER.  AND THE BEST PART- THERE IS NO QUESTION WHO THE OWNER IS. MY HUSBAND SAYS I'VE BECOME A LITTLE TOO DUCT TAPE HAPPY--WHAT DO YOU THINK??  HAVE I GONE OVERBOARD? I AM STILL ASKING MYSELF-"WHAT CAN I WRAP/COVER NEXT-I CAN'T STOP!
