Since 89% of my friends are married, i've been privy to some 'china' discussions before. China. What's the big deal? My mom has China and we maybe (if we're lucky) get to eat on it once a year. I've always thought it was a waste. It's like silver. If i had silver place settings, i'd use them everyday. That way i would feel like a princess everyday instead of once a year. What is it with these weird wedding traditions? Buy a set of nice plates to put in a cupboard and only use it for 'special occasions'???? Guess what sweetheart, being alive is an occasion. Not to mention how traditional and boring some China is... i never thought i'd buy any China if i ever got married........................ until now.
