So, I've noticed that I have a habit of sharing the crazy (note; stupid) things that Garnet does and some of you (who don't know him of course) may think that I pick on him a little. I figured it's only fair that I take a turn with the "What the hell were you thinking???" chair for a minute.
A few weeks ago I was invited to a Pampered Chef party at my neighbours (yes, the one that planted my garden for me). Unfortunately, it was the night that my Dad and Brother came by for a visit (which doesn't happen very often what with them living 6 hours away and all...)
I forgot to tell her and ended up cancelling on her last minute -- I felt horrible about it but she gladly gave me a Pampered Chef magazine to flip through and pick anything out. About a week went by (and I still had barely looked at it) when she politely asked if I had a chance browse and that she needed it back in a few days to send in her order.
I made a mental note -- but of course, I forgot.
A few days later she came by my house to get the magazine back and hopefully collect her order. I was flustered that I had kept forgetting and out of guilt thought I should definitely buy something for being so stupid with it.
I looked everywhere for the magazine -- and could not find it anywhere....Garnet had cleaned the house (and of course by "cleaning the house" you know I mean "storm around and fill as many garbage bags as he can"......) and had thrown it away. She is standing in my doorway waiting - I'm feeling sillier by the minute.
Now, I felt so guilty I had to buy something.
"Oh, that's alright...." she says trying to brush it off; "Did you see anything you would like?"
I'm racking my brain trying to remember anything that I saw under $100 (which is rare)
"Actually, there were these plates that I thought would be neat for camping.... you know the ones that hold the cup on the side?"
She knew exactly the ones I was talking about.....
....The plates, plus tax, plus the shipping fee....plus, plus, plus......
The golden name
I paid $25.00 for dollar store quality plates.....
Now, if anyone knows of one; I'm looking for a china cabinet to display them in for our camping trips.
