This is the only reason he still has his nasty pit-stained undershirts from high school.

We lose the DNB's favorite pasta strainer!

I don't know why he likes it so much. It's small enough that it doesn't really fit any of our pots, so stray noodles always slip by when we use it.

"You had BETTER not have thrown it away," the DNB says accusingly.

In fairness to me, I threaten to throw away his more useless kitchen tools fairly often (pasta maker unused since its purchase at a thrift store in 2002 - what?). However, I never actually have.

"Because if I have to choose you or the strainer, I'm taking the strainer," he continues.

"Really, even though it's so crappy?" I ask. I clearly am not the Catch I thought I was.

The next day, I email the DNB at work.

"Remember that horrible, useless green strainer you told me you'd divorce me if I threw away? Found it! Marriage saved!"

"Lucky for you," he writes back.

Yeah most of those T-shirts from high school are ones that he stole for me. And then pit stained them so I didn't want them back.

Hey, some people lick their food to claim it; I pit stain my stolen t-shirts. Seems to work.
