3/365 – Gifts

GIFTS

Oh, man.  Our living room looks like the Bed Bath & Beyond monster has a bad case of diarrhea.  So many presents.  So many purple ribbons thrown about like pices of royal toilet paper.  I mean, I’m grateful, but there’s SO MANY PRESENTS.  And remember how I told you I was haveing post partum depression yeterday.  You don’t.  Then read the post, jerk!  I can wait  . . . great, now I’m depressed again because while you were catching up, the mail man dropped off the Bed Bath & Beyond Monster and crapped more presents on our floor.  This time it was a replacement brushes for a electric toothbrush we don’t own – which may mean that damn monster is gonna number 2 an electric tooth brush sometime this week.

What's that sound? I just pooped some more Calphalon pots and pans, biznatch.

Anyway, that depression has turned into anxiety – how are we gonna use all this stuff?  Okay, I’m sure the denizens of good natured, thankful people out there (single people) are saying, “What a jerk!  YOU HAVE GIFTS!”  I do have a Magic Bullet now, which is cool.  And I’m not ungrateful.  Megan and I both are super happy to have any and everything from our wedding guests.  Our fear lies in our own wedding registry.  Did we just take that scan gun at BBB and go on a barcode murder spree?

 

This barcode was just asking to be scanned. I mean, look at the way it's dressed!

Here the thing.  When you’re given a scanner and free range at Bed Bath & Beyond (which, I’ll add, is an awesome store, naysayers.), that 24 piece spice rack looks awesome . . . as does that giant non-stick griddle / metal ping pong paddle . . . . ooohh, and that titanium plated rolling pin smelted with ashes from Gene Roddenbury . . . is that a 15 piece toaster that changes oast back to bread? . . .  Look, all the stuff we registered for we wanted – but do we need it?  That’s the question.  Well, this may answer your (my) question . . . Megan and I’s diet consists of protein shakes made with Starbucks Via (me) and Amy’s Microwavable Asian Bowls (Megan).  We cook about as much as we commit murder – about once every two months.

The one day spaghetti night coincided with murder night.

So, obviously the solution is to look at these gifts, recognize their purpose and then make it a point to try some new things.  Of course, writing about this and actually doing it are two different things unless I can eat this computer . . . nope.  Can’t.  So, in a way, all of these gifts ae a blessing.  Maybe, just mayvbe they will force us to start cooking (pots and pans), having guests over more (dinner trays), showering (towels) or negotiating land and trade prices with my new pioneering neighbors (Settlers of Catan).  In any case, we need to get this stuff unpacked and commit to using them as catalysts for a change in our day to day lives.

5-6 player extension . . . isn't that what Mormonism is about?
