Whoever thought this would happen?

Nathalie and I sat down to make a wedding registry, and we couldn't think of more than a few things we really need. Or want, for that matter.

Sturdier flatware that won't bend when we try to dig out ice cream, a new set of grilling tools to replace the ones that were stolen several months ago, and a large stockpot for making chili were about all that we could come up with.

The dread of receiving mountains of vases, picture frames, or anything monogrammed is motivation enough to come up with a registry... but we were left shrugging our shoulders and scratching our heads.

The ideal thing would be for people to pool their money together and help us buy a used car, but how do you ask for that?
