[put flashlight with others while spouse looking away; flashlights all look the same to them, and if existing collection is big enough, addition of one won't be noticeable]

Sal,

Great technique. Reminds me of the strategy used by airgunners -- first build up the collection to where you have at least several, then every time you add a new one it becomes inconspicuous because to the disinterested, they all look the same...

I think many of us are already using this method without even thinking about it -- the only critical window is getting the new light past the front gate...

"But, Marge, it would have been too expensive to buy 2 M6's, so I only bought 1.

I just tell her "But honey, Mr. Bulk wants me to mod it with a thermonuclear dilithium emitter and cobalt superconducting feromagnetic power source"

She hears "But honey, blah blah Bulk blah blah blah blah blah blah blah .......

What this one? Oh it was on back-order from two months ago. Finally just shipped this week.

...and similarly...

Yeah well, this is one I pre-ordered back in <some_month_here>.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Heh, this technique works for guns, tools, assorted hardware and computer equipment (it doesn't work that well for junked desktop computers or monitors, trust me). The minimum number for this technique to work is three, although the bigger the pile the better.

Here's my line: "This old thing? I've had it for ages, remember? Let's go out for dinner. My treat. What do you feel like eating, honey?" First, by implying that she failed to notice, you put (part of) the blame on her. Next, you make her think about what kind of food she'd like you to buy. It is still a good idea to lie low, for a while. Don't bring your pile out and admire it for a week or so.

"Oh my dear...

, when we have a power failure in house, at night, we really should have a good flashlight everywhere! This could save lives!"

And since you put your flashlights really everywhere (you will have to with all these lights...)this will be really convincing...

(Or not, since all the other explanations are not convincing either

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I want one too! How much are they? What is the size and weight? Is it regulated? How many Lumens? Can you post beam shots? Have you done runtime tests? Can you make it with a green case? Can you add a dimmer? Please respond quickly.

Although I suppose you normally use a flashlight "where the sun don't shine"
