When I put the slicer in the eBay pile, my husband asked why I was getting rid of it.
“I haven’t used it since before we moved in. Why should I keep it?”
He pointed out that the new apartment will have a much larger, more usable kitchen so it won’t get buried in the depths of an unusable cabinet. Plus, I’ve recently discovered jicama, which requires peeling and slicing. Using the slicer will make Sunday afternoon preparations for weekly lunches a lot easier on me.
I agreed to pack the slicer and bring it to the new apartment with the stipulation that it must be used in the next 3 months. If it goes unused, it gets eBayed. Now I just need to put a sticker on it with a date in September so I know when the three months are up and get rid of it…unless it becomes my new favorite kitchen tool.
