...it is highly frowned upon by The Mister for me to exclaim while shopping in Pier 1, "Hey, babe? Haven't you always wanted a wooden salad bowl? How about this one?" I guess that's somewhat embarrassing for a guy, especially when there is another man within ear shot who turns to see what wimpy guy wants a salad bowl.
I tried to recover by mentioning saws and Lowes and other manly stuff, but apparently the damage was done.
My apologies, Chief. I wasn't trying to confiscate your Man Card, I swear.
And you're right, those bowls weren't the right ones, anyway.
