"Hey, I like these little plates."
Yeah, I said. My mom got them for me.
In the famous kids' book, a boy has an Indian magically come to life in his cupboard.
Every day, my mother magically comes back to life in mine*.
Happy birthday, Mom.
* I can open any drawer or cabinet in my kitchen and find at least one thing from Mom in there. As you might expect, we use these things all the time, and she bought every single one of them on sale (or used a coupon).
