Clerical Matters

My lovely wife and the mother-to-be asked that I relate the locations that we have registered.

I swear that the fact that they invented those little scanner guns has probably saved countless fights and possibly marriages by getting the husband just excited enough to participate in wedding and baby registries. For example:

Prior to scanner guns:

W: "Hey honey, it is Saturday afternoon and I've been excited all week about going to register at ______ for our upcoming _______. Come on, let's go, it will be fun."

M: "The game is on and I've had a long week, can't you just do it? I mean it isn't like I care what place setting we get or what pattern the sheets have. As long as I have a plate to eat on and sheets to sleep on, I'm good, I'm a man."

W: (Angrily) "Seriously, if I can't even get you to go with me to register for all the things we will take into our new life together, how do you think we are going to work together when something really serious comes up? This shows a lack of interest and commitment on your part, and maybe I should re-think this upcoming __________ all together!!!!


After scanner guns:

W: "Hey honey, it is Saturday afternoon and I've been excited all week about going to register at ______ for our upcoming _______. Come on, let's go, it will be fun."

M: "The game is on and I've had a long week, but do they have those scanner gun things?"

W: "Yep, they sure do."

M: "Sweet, I'm in."


See what I mean? Anyway, we are registered at:

Babies "R" Us

Target

Thanks to everyone for your continued prayers, thoughts and well wishes during this very exciting time!
