A Retraction


I’m a fraud.

Yesterday I wrote:  “I bought a pitcher with a rooster on it yesterday, which is kind of baffling because I’m not really a rooster person. I don’t fancy myself a rooster lover or collector, nor have I ever set out to intentionally buy rooster embossed kitchenware.  I honestly couldn’t care less about roosters.”

After I wrote this, I looked up, opened my eyes, for what appears to be the first time in two and a half years, and realized I’m surrounded by roosters.

In bowl form, which sits in the middle of our breakfast table,

on my wall, hung on a plate rack,

on my counter

and WAY up high in my kitchen cabinets.

Sorry, everyone.    I lied.

I’m issuing a retraction.

What kills me (besides the fact that I’ve owned these items since we moved here in July 2008) is that from where I sit to blog,

all I need to do is look up and to my left to see the big orange platter on my kitchen counter.

The big orange platter with a big rooster in the middle.


Clearly, I bought these items because I liked the vibrant colors and not because I like roosters.  For if I did like roosters, I probably would have noticed and remembered that there are roosters on the plates and bowls.

I quit.

In other news, I couldn’t bear to look at the rooster on my pitcher, so I turned it around again.

I need help.
