My daughter broke a plate. Ok, it was an accident, these things happen. But did it have to be one of the few plates that was still unchipped?
Oh yes, that's one of the immutable laws of the universe. My DB and DSIL gave me one Christmas two beautiful wine glasses, hand made by a local designer. I loved them. A couple of years later, I broke one, and I was furious with myself. I asked where they had come from, intending to see if they were still available, and my DB and DSIL, the next Christmas, bought me two more. They were the same colours and the same shapes but not precisely the same size. Naturally, when a year later I broke a glass, it wasn't the original one, it was one of the new ones, so that I still have two but... they aren't a pair.
