if you read my blog regularly you know that my friend poo poo is getting married this weekend.
and of course i haven't bought her and her fiance a wedding gift yet, which is oh so typical of me.
i just don't know what to get them! i have this thing where i don't like simply writing people a check for their wedding gift - especially such a good friend of mine. and the other issue is that their registry is shot, like completely fulfilled now, although i did get her a shower gift off her registry a month ago so it's partially my fault.
so what do i do? i asked poo poo what they wanted flat out. of course she's like, "i don't care! you don't even have to get me a gift. i just want you there and to have fun!"
i know exactly what her fiance samson wants. he told me the night they got engaged.
we were all at little bar downtown waiting for the newly engaged couple to come show off poo poo's new rock. when they arrive i'm chatting with the couple about how excited i was for them blah blah blah.
i asked samson how excited he was for the wedding. he replied, "basically i'm thinking of this as a business venture. i'm in it for the cash."
we laughed because he was kidding, yet being slightly honest. buying a seat on the chicago board of trade isn't cheap ya know.
from that point i got lippy with him saying that he wasn't getting ANY cash from me. i was going to take the $100 i would spend on them and buy them something practical and useful.
i told him i was going to go to the dollar store and buy them 100 rolls of saran wrap.
yup, saran wrap.
everyone needs it so why wouldn't it make a great gift?!?!
so the saran wrap joke continues and i still threaten samson and poo poo that they will be receiving a big box full of plastic wrap on their door step after their honeymoon.
who says i'm teasing though? muah-ha-ha
the other option for a gift is buying poo poo a $100 gift card to this restaurant il mulino in chicago that apparently she is dying to go to and samson hasn't taken her. i can even buy the gift card online and send it to their condo. easy right?
or is it lame? i mean do people actually give restaurant, albeit a very good restaurant, gift cards for a wedding gift?
i'm so confused. and of course i discussed all of this with poo poo because i'm horrible with surprises - i can't keep gifts secret it's a major flaw of mine. one of like the three flaws i have.
so i decided to ask you my dear readers. what should i get poo poo and samson for their wedding gift?
option 1: check for $100
option 2: 100 rolls of saran wrap from the $1 store
option 3: $100 gift card to il mulino
option 4: __________________ (fill in the blank, you tell me!)
and of course i need your help ASAP due to the wedding being oh, in 5 days. majority rules so i'm going to listen to you all, especially everyone that is already married. what were some of your favorite gifts? help!
[sidenote - poo poo is fully aware that her wedding gift is going to be picked by my readers. it was actually her idea. she's nuts i tell you, nuts!]
