consumer abuse

Have any of y'all ever worn out a Microplane? Because I have, and now I have to order another one, and what do I do until it gets here? Shouldn't they be a lifetime purchase? Is it the fault of my magnetic knife strip? Did it bend the little teeth in so they wouldn't work anymore? Because I can't go back to the old way of storing knives. I won't! I won't put them back in the drawer (except for you, paring knives . . . mommy loves you, I promise), and I will NOT allow a knife block in my house. I moved that magnetic strip here from our last house, and it's now mounted on a plaster wall, if that gives you an idea of the level of commitment the magnetic knife strip and I have reached. We are exclusively dating.

You know - they make Microplanes for people with nasty heels. I know because I have some... nasty heels and Microplanes. and yes - I have worn one out.

I'm pretty sure that Collette Jensen said to put Bag Balm on your feet and wear socks to bed. But I guess you're a fancy girl . . .

I can go buy you some at the feed store if you're embarrassed.
