Now that my bar exam is over, Andrew shall have to find some new subject about which to tweet.
I had hoped I might receive a nice gift to celebrate my completion of the Minnesota Bar Exam, but my hopes were to be dashed.
My preferred gift was a Kaiser Wilhelm nut dish, issued in 1913 to mark the 25th anniversary of Kaiser Wilhelm’s ascension to the Hohenzollern throne.
Every household should have at least one Kaiser Wilhelm nut dish—and a matching pair, if possible.
Made of the finest Dresden china with fine pierced trim, the Kaiser Wilhelm nut dish depicts the Kaiser and Kaiserin and German national eagle, all portrayed in vibrant if not radiant color.
For weeks, I had been dropping countless hints about my wish for a Kaiser Wilhelm nut dish . . . but no one presented me with a Kaiser Wilhelm nut dish yesterday.
I’ll have to carry on somehow without one—and try to contain my bitter disappointment.
Perhaps a trip to Britain next week will help me cope with my woe.
