So the plate saga came to a close today. Cat received a call from World Market on Tuesday morning who told her they don't make those plates anymore and therefor could not ship her the rest of the set she paid for. They refunded the price of the dinner plates. Annoyed, Cat drove over to the World Market by our house and found the plates hidden in a corner of the story and got them. But now we have 6 dinner plates and 4 salad plates and 4 bowls. GASP! They are UNEVEN!
This is where I came in. Cat calls me at work and asks if I can stop at the World Market in Friendship Heights and see if they have 2 bowls and salad plates there. I obliged and after work took the bus over there and was greeted with quite literally a wall adorned with about 100 of each type of plate; they were even used in the displays. So I grab the required items and a couple other things and go to check out.
I should have anticipated something awry when the cashier seemed to be moving at an unusually speedy pace because he eventually dropped a bowl, shattering it. At this point I'm beginning to think someone doesn't want us to have this set, but I go and grab another bowl per the cashier's request and proceed home where all items arrived intact. So now we have a new set of plates.
I understand it's weird to have not posted any images of this set, but who cares, the new cow cup I got is cute.
