Another Death in the Family

My toaster died this morning. I knew it was coming - it was getting old and crotchety. Today I had to throw it away. I've already picked out a new one, which I will get after an appropriate mourning period. BUT - tomorrow is my birthday and I do NOT want a toaster as a birthday present! There is just something terribly wrong with giving household appliances as birthday presents. I don't care how cute they are.

Seriously, how fun is that toaster?! And happy birthday! And...I'm very relieved to read your post as my heart leapt to my throat at the title...you've had enough already.

I'm sorry, but I like getting appliances for gift-giving occasions. Especially kitchen gadgets.

I, too, love kitchen gadgets for presents. BUT I think a toaster might be stretching it a bit. Stand mixers and panini presses are much more fun.

I somewhat agree with you about no appliances for gifts, but I was really excited to get a dishwasher last Christmas...of course, I'd be even more excited if it weren't still sitting in the corner of the dining room (10 months ago!!) where it landed on Christmas Eve. Someday, it will be installed and ready to use. *fingers crossing* On the lighter side, atleast I know the delay cycle works, right?
