Some friends of mine, a lesbian couple, recently had a baby. I asked myself, what's an appropriate gift for that situation? And I answered, "self, go find an old-fashioned turkey baster and have it bronzed."
This got the best possible response: "that looks just like the one we used!"
Why didn't I think of this first?
