I turned 44 the other day. Nice palindromic number. My lovely mother-in-law gave me a check, with the notation "for some clothes shopping." She knows I like new clothes, but have no budget for them.
Instead, I went to a kitchen store and bought two new hot pot mitts, a kitchen towel, and a French press. SO CUTE. But I had to laugh at myself. Really? Kitchen towel? For a treat?
