Since maturing (and I use that phrase very loosely) I’ve developed a love for pink. I have lots of pink T-shirts and sweaters in various hues. I bought a pink suitcase (bagzilla) which in hindsight wasn’t really the smartest thing because duh pink shows dirt. Bagzilla was fully pink all of one day, alas.
I think maybe it has something to do with the fact that I spent a number of my adolescent years hanging out with boys and wearing black everything, down to my underwear (“my life is a dark room, one big dark room”). So when I started embracing the feminine my mother had a picture burning party and celebrated having a girl once again
(not of my doing by the way it was a rental), that I would abhor the colour but I don’t. I do know that pink does not belong on walls, at least in my world (and yes I know your’s too Hon).
I also love love love stainless steel so when Tom and I were cozied up on the couch this weekend going through the weekend local rag’s flyers I came across pink kitchen utensils, no wait, not just pink, but pink AND stainless steel! It’s like they friggin made them for me. I sat bolt upright and squealed.
So I stopped and bought them today.
Yeah ok they are REALLY tacky but most of it is hidden in the drawers…
The best part is even if most of the set of 30 pieces of kitchen crap is exactly that (crap) there is still some really useful stuff in there (measuring spoons and cups, ladles etc) that the rest can break and I won’t care. Some of my kitchen stuff is over 20 years old it was time..
Seriously though, all three pieces cost me just about $30.00 in total so pshhh..whatever, if I hate them in a few months (or more likely they start breaking) it’s not like I spent a bunch of money.
And they are pink!
