Why the Wife Does All The Cooking

Back in 2007, my wife was tired and did not want to cook a big turkey dinner for Thanksgiving.

"No problem," I said. "I've got it covered."

Well, on the plus side it was the talk of the neighborhood for quite a while.

[ disclaimer - the above-mentioned event never actually happened, but my wife assures me that if I were to actually try making Thanksgiving dinner on my own, it would ]

Since retiring (and Momma still working), I cook 4 days out of the week. The other three days, I rest.

I made the microwave popcorn and she opened the wine. We believe in a team effort too.

"Mercy" just ain't in her vocabulary, is it?
