See, nothing matches. Nothing is shiny or new. It is used up, broken up and mismatched. It is an array of 14 years worth of stops at the store to replace what's broken.
The best part is you can register again!!! And this time you won't be needing the cappuccino maker, donut maker, parifin wax hand thing, or even the foot soaker. You will register for stuff you use everyday! You will replace your gross nasty pans, your warped cookie sheets and get a set of utensils that match and can scoop chili.
While we are at it, let's create a spinster shower too. If you have turned forty and have never had a bridal shower and have gone to more than three showers in your life - you get one too! My best friend has attended and bought over 100 gifts for friends and has yet to find the love of her life. She has gotten ripped off! She needs a shower too! Sorry, Jen that I called you a "spinster" but I am attempting to get you free stuff so I didn't think you would care.
Ok, are you in? Feel free to "like" this post on Facebook! Tweet it to your friends! Let's spread the word so we can let everyone know about the new American expectation. Hell with it. Let's call it the new Universal Rule because I have readers all over the world and I am sure you ladies in Dublin or India want some new cool stuff too, right? Isn't this how Valentine's Day got started? And we didn't even have Twitter then! With your help, it should work.
I will keep you posted and let you know when the rule becomes official! Thanks for your help!
