My Hub's Least Favorite Things...

You know, when you marry someone, you often marry much of their stuff. Not in a life-long commitment way, necessarily. But it's something to sort through and debate and compromise on. Maybe it's his neon sign he wants to display in the front window. Perhaps it's Cubs memorabilia that he wants to display on the china buffet.

Well, Adam inherited quite a few lovely items when he married me. His least favorite is girlfriend.



This is girlfriend.
Girlfriend is a wicker mannequin.
Girlfriend was bought before my junior year in college at a thrift shop between my hometown in Louisiana and Baylor (Waco, Texas). My roommates loved her! We dressed her seasonally and for holidays. She was our special friend.

Adam was less than thrilled with girlfriend. Every time we have moved, he has lobbied to have her sold or given away. She did serve a two-year sentence in the basement in Erie but he has not prevailed yet. Instead, she has been used for decoration at many a baby shower and birthday party and I'm pleased to report that she now greets visitors at the threshold of our home.
