Yesterday Nick and I were cleaning the house and moving some stuff around when he mentions the China... it's a discussion we have had before. He doesn't really see the point in our beautiful china dishes.
So he says: "We really should just sell this. I mean, it's been nearly SIX YEARS and you have never even used it!"
Which... just isn't even the point of China. It's point is to BE BEAUTIFUL. But he had a point. We never really had EATEN on it. So....
I set the table! (isn't it beautiful?)
Then I made a nice fancy dinner of Chicken Fricassee, which FINE, was already on the menu for dinner, but it was just so much FANCIER on the china! And I made a salad so we got to use all FOUR plates (salad, dinner, desert and the coffee cup saucer). And I used the fancy cups... and I WORE A DRESS! Because the China deserves a dress.
I was about to be like, "I SHOWED HIM! Don't you DARE threaten to sell my China!" but then I realized he got a hell of a meal out of that threat... and a wife in a dress.
Well played, Nick. Well played.
