You guys are always in the department store at the same time I'm there looking for a wedding gift. You're usually along side your fiancé pretending to be happy -- jointly filling out the registry for your upcoming wedding. Both of you are so easy to spot. The beaming glow on your fiancé's face -- and the ‘please just kill me now’ look on yours. Well, good news men! Your days of being dragged along to pick out the fine china may soon be over.
According to a recent survey of National Association of Home Builders members, many believe that the formal dining room is on its way out. In fact, by the year 2015, several features which were once common and customary are predicted to be eliminated -- reflecting the changing wants and needs of future new home buyers. But, don't worry guys. Although new home building experts indicate that home variations are on the horizon, the article didn’t mention anything about doing away with “Man Caves.”
Just another reason to eat on the good china today! So, what should we do with our good china? Many of us have these exquisite, sentimental items packed away, hidden, never to see the light of day except on special occasions. Why do we do that? Why save the fancy stuff, only to enjoy our finer things when company comes over? Life is short! We should put on our best Sunday clothes and pull out the good dishes -- everyday! We don’t need a formal dining room to appreciate the gifts in our lives anyway, right?
Well, I'm going to give it a try. I wonder how Chinese take-out will taste on my grandmother's antique dishes?
