So, I just celebrated my 40th birthday last August. Forty and not married. As if in, still single. Do you know what irks me the most about being single in my forties? The fact I never received one gathering devoted to me receiving presents. In other words, a shower.
I’ve never had the opportunity to receive silverware, a nice set of pots and pans, a bread maker or anything like that. Not even a toaster. And I just want to say, I think that stinks.
No towels, dishes, or laundry sets. Nada.
Boo society! Boo on you.
I think if you reach the age of 30 and are still in the world of singledom you should be thrown a shower. We’ll call it a You’re Still a Nice Person and Deserve Presents Usually Reserved for the Marrieds shower. Shortened to You’re Still a Nice Person shower.
Just picture it – the person registers at a store. Marks his or her wish list. And then people go buy it. Why do they buy it? Because (he or she is) Still a Nice Person. Nice people deserve gifts, too.
It ought to be a thing. I could sure use some new pans and towels.
