    When we were out shopping one day (one of my rare trips to the mall), my wife pointed down into a jewelry case at a certain ring and said "I really want that one."

    For which I was grateful, as she had a birthday coming up, and she knows very well by know that I can't take a hint worth diddly. Subtle, unsubtle, obvious...they all go straight over my head because I get too busy processing verbal face-value information to analyze the context and other aspects of the interaction that constitutes a hint...and because my skills at such analysis are vestigial at best.
