Guess what I bought myself????
Some girls dream of buying a pair of manolo blahniks with their first paychecks. Some covet the latest Prada or Gucci ‘It’ bag. Some want luxury spa holidays.

And anyhows, what if -gasP!- I never do tie the knot? Am I going to flush my high-powered kitchen mixer dreams down the drain just because I lack a husband?? By gosh, imagine how many batches of comfort cookies and cakes I’d need to bake to stave off the depression that would engulf me everytime I thought about my inability to secure a soulmate? Just for that reason alone i.e. my mental health, I decided to go ahead and buy the mixer myself.
I don’t know how I ended up buying the grape colored one though. I had my eye on the pale yellow the whole time, but when the sales guy asked me which color I wanted, the purple one just jumped at me, waving it mixer-hands around, shouting “PiCk ME, PicK mE!” And I ended up doing so.
Gack. My kitchen appliances have voices. And I listen to them.
Little Miss Purple Sunshine. My pride and joy.
Wait for the next post where I show off her amazing abilities!
