I feel I should start this off with a disclaimer: I haven't dated anyone recently, I haven't broken up with anyone recently, both of those would require me to have some sort of man around which I do not have. The contents of this post are merely a reflection on past events.
As I got to thinking about it though I realized that all my best appliances had been bought after particularly bad breakups. I won't lie, I'm glad none of them worked out for many many reasons, but the obvious ones aside, if it weren't for failed relationships I wouldn't have ever been the proud owner of a quesadilla maker, the Magic Bullet blender, a George Foreman grill, an icecream maker, and of course the crepe maker. All things that have brought me much joy over the past several years of my life. I mean ideally, it'd be nice to have one of them work out eventually, but hey, on the off chance that I suffer a few more broken hearts I do have my eye on a nice juicer and a cotton candy machine. both of which would be great little additions to my collection. So a little bit of advice to all the women out there, just know that there's no heart too broken that a trip to Bed, Bath, and Beyond can't fix. And to you men reading this, if your feeling a little left out because you feel like a kitchen appliance just won't cut it for mending that shattered heart of yours, just take a trip to the hardware store and pick yourselves up some power tools. That's sure to do the trick.
P.S. In case you were wondering, the crepes turned out delicious as always. A crepe with lemon juice and a dash of powdered sugar is the best way to start off your Saturday morning.
