Year 2 Day 55: Express Yourself
Behold...Matt's new replacement lighter! Yep, folks...only real men rock lighters with ladybirds. Nothing else screams brute masculinity. But don't fret, you too can have your very own for ONLY a mere 89 pence! That's right! Be sure to rush right down to your neighbourhood Dillon's. All the cool kids have one.
It did make me chuckle a bit tonight when he returned from nipping out to get a few bits to show me this. He accidentally dropped his old one on the ground outside the car this morning and it broke. He obviously didn't want to look daft carrying around the long candle-lighter all the while. Unfortunately, this was the extent of what he had to choose from and we all know beggar's can't be choosers. So...it's a lighter...it makes fire...SOLD!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
