Fiance's mother called while were out shopping one day, and fiance passed me the phone. It's a tradition on their side to throw an engagement party for couples getting married. Future MIL wonders if she can get me a Kitchen Aid Stand mixer as a present for the party (YES! A MILLION TIMES YES!) and in what colour would I like it? She would have asked her son but he would have no idea what she was talking about.
I told the story to fiance and:
"I know what a kitchen aid stand mixer is."
"It's those big mixer things you keep pointing out to me in stores with lust in your eyes."
"Would you know what colour? Out of red, blue, lime green, white, black?"
"Lime green! If there wasn't a purple option, I would have gotten you the bright colour because I know how much you love bright colours."
