Last weekend was Mark and I’s first anniversary. It was a special night filled with dozens of roses, dinner at an amazing restaurant, and sweet speeches to each other that made us weep.
Actually, someone passed on four seasons of Grey’s Anatomy to me earlier that day. It’s crack. And I’m hooked. All while getting lost in McDreamy’s goodness I forgot about a prior engagement (sorry, Susan!) and about doing anything special for dinner. When I finally remembered that we should probably eat, I tore myself away from Meredith and company to get us some dinner at our neighborhood Greek place.
Except it was closed. Darn. McDonald’s it would have to be.
That’s right. We had McDonald’s, watched Grey’s (he’s hooked too!), and argued about whether or not eating the year-old freezer burned cake could result in sickness (I said no, he said yes). And that was it.
In a way, I felt that eating McD’s was a fitting and symbolic end to our first year as a married couple. And that made me sad. Because shouldn’t I be more at home in the kitchen? Shouldn’t I want to bake cookies and make sure my husband’s underwear is clean? Because right now I really don’t. Right now I’m not domesticated.
So my resolution for year 2 is to become domesticated. And you’re going to help. I fear what I do not know, and I do not know the kitchen. Instead of continuing to let my fear control me, I’m going to ask you, my wonderful handful of readers, all the questions I’ve ever had about all things domestic.
And I’m using the powers of Video.
First question: How on earth do you use Saran Wrap???
Seriously, how do you use it?
