Anniversary Buzz

My flatware drawer just got a lot heavier. My good friend Wenirs remembered our 10th wedding anniversary with a set of stainless flatware that I know she just couldn't resist.

My Beloved's nickname is "Buzz" so Wenirs often sends us things with bees on them, celebrating my honey of a guy and his unusual name. There was the delightful big brass doorknocker in the shape of a bumblebee. The tape measure striped in yellow and black with a silly smile on the bee's face. Dish towels with honey bees on them. And now this flatware (the set on the left) that sports Napoleon's bee. I know it tickled her fancy that Napoleon was French, too, as she and I have a long-running rivalry between the French that I love and the British that she adores. While knowing that neither will ever convince the other, still we have long-winded arguments about the merits of those two countries.

Unthinkable to jettison our old set, so I ankled down to the local container store and bought another drawer organizer to fit in the new in next to the old. We are having silly fun each evening deciding which set to use for dinner. Vive la France and God Save the Queen!

My first name translates from the Hebrew (so I'm told) to "bee." Or in some versions, "industrious," as in the busy bee.
I wanna use the bee flatware next time. Oh hell, I owe you lunch here first. Bring the spoons!
