Adventure Number 526: Registering

Editors Note: I promised Mike I would not, under any circumstances, post again until he had. I reminded him of all of the praise that he got from his last post and pushed him to write again. But he has refused. And so I found this in the annals of the unpublished works of Michael W. Lau, dating all the way back to last June. It is unfinished, but it still made me giggle. Enjoy.

A few weekends ago Whitney and I decided that we were going to tackle one of the big items off of our to do list. We decided we were going to register. Little did we know what a big deal this was going to be. After a couple grueling days, multiple big gulps, two packages of dots, and one jr cheeseburger from Wendy's we were somewhat registered.

The first obstacle was deciding where we were going to register. The list of places we had was ridiculously long. It felt like we were reading war and peace. It ranged from Pottery Barn to Toys'R'Us to Walmart to Versaci to Costco to Wendy's to Radio Shack to hundreds of others. She had her favorites and I had mine. So in order to decide where we were going to register we did it in the most civilized way possible, a staring contest, quick me and you. Well as we all know I suck at staring contest and she got 3 out of the 4. I think she let me have the last one cuz she felt bad.

After we decided where we were going to register the next challenge we faced was agreeing on what to register for. She was adamant on having a china set by Kate Spade while I really wanted a Martha Stewart set. Needles to say we went with the Kate Spade set after security had to come and make her release me from a headlock. In the end we went with most of her choices due to the violence inherent in the system.

He tells a good story and Mike really should post more.
