Let's Ponder This

This conversation occurred between The Farmer and me the other day:

The Farmer: Oh, before I forget, I saw a pair of your diamond earrings on your dresser. I moved them to the back of the bathroom counter so the kids wouldn't get into them.

Me: Thanks, but they are fake ones from Target, so it doesn't really matter if the kids get them.

The Farmer: Well, I didn't know, so I just moved them.

Me: Okay, but where did you think I had gotten huge, real diamond earrings if you didn't buy them for me?

The Farmer: I didn't know. I just assumed you went out and bought them for yourself.

Me: What?!?! You think I would go out and spend that much money on myself without talking to you first?

The Farmer: Yes. Yes, I do.

At first I was pretty irritated that The Farmer would think that I would go purchase something so large for myself without asking him. But then I started thinking...

If he already thought that I would buy myself real diamond earrings, why the heck am I wearing $15 Target ones?!?!?!
