Or in this case in a Scion xA. I pictured my husband in some kind of knight in gen-x, road cyclist armor yesterday. He took on the quest for a modern day grail. Perhaps you can get a glimpse into our lives through the things we seek, the things we revere. I had been browsing online when I discovered a website full of wondrous household items. In it I found what could be the perfect dish rack. I called Neil over and he joined me in marveling over its features. When we realized that it could be purchased at a local store that had recently mailed us coupon, we were elated! However, our jubilant mood was dampened by the expiration date. How could I make it there when I had to work all day plus attend a meeting in the evening? That is when it happened. Neil said that he would go to the store by himself. We looked online and sure enough there was a store by his work in Valencia.

Last night, Neil ventured into a Bed, Bath & Beyond by himself looking for a dish rack. He called me afterward and told me of the wonder he felt as he entered this strange realm. He soon found himself caught in the trap of a decoy dish rack display filled with inferior models. Wondering what he should do, he considered taking one of them and giving up the quest. Luckily, a guide was sent to him in the guise of a fellow shopper. This woman told Neil of the other display that held the true grail – the perfect dish rack. That night my knight in sporty armor came home victorious to his maiden fair.

  1. Please tell Neil that I think he is really terrific. Every woman should have such a knight! Signed: Her Majesty

  2. Well, let’s not get Neil too full of himself now! We’ll have to send you a photo of Neil happily using his new dish rack 😉

  3. Let’s hear it for Neil! (grin)

    What I want to know is: Did he buy any thing else at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, such as the handy-dandy tools advertised on the Home Shopping Network?

    If he did not, he is Knight of all Knights!

  4. Can’t wait….Did he “get” the signature?

  5. So why is “Your Majesty” funny? A family joke, right? ‘Fess up.

    Incredible restraint shown by the knight in question. Most other knights would have added Massage Cushion/IPod speakers to their shopping cart and hoped their fair lady wouldn’t notice a shaking cushion blaring music. grin

  6. Neil said that he came close to buying a massage cushion for his car seat that also has built in speakers for his iPod!

    Yes, Your Majesty, Neil and I were laughing about it 🙂
