“So a registry is when you give the people who come a little gift?” Good Man asked.

“No, those are favors.”

“What’s a registry?”

“When you go to a store and make a list of the wedding gifts you want.”

Good Man looked shocked. “What?” I nodded. “That’s—that’s kind of awkward and funny!”

“It’s what we do. We think making people pay to get food is awkward and funny.”

Good Man, still rather shocked looking, said, “It’s like a wedding version of an Amazon giftlist? That’s so strange! That’s so—so American!”

Good Man’s newest phrase: that’s so American.
