How to find my husband in a store...

How do I find my husband in a store, more so a store with kitchen ware and utensils? Well, one of his favorite things to check out are pans and knives. Lately cast iron griddles, pans and dutch ovens. A few years ago it was stock pots and knives. Two weeks ago while shopping at Tuesday morning, for pans, I realized I can never loose him in a kitchen store. Why? All I have to do is listen for the sound of pans dinging and donging. Oh! you think I'm talking about him dropping them? Nope, he's not clumsy. He tests them by hitting them on his head. You got it. He smacks the pan on his manly frontal lobe and if it goes *dink* it's no good. But, if he picks up a pan and it has a nice weight to it, he will again test it's all mighty greatness with another smack on the head. If it bellows a *dong*. It's obviously a great pan. What's worse, is that he's always right!

This past weekend on another trip shopping for yet another pan, the lady at the store recognized him and said "you're the pan man right?" See? even the clerks know him and we do have quite the collection too!


So, if you ever see a guy hitting his noggin with a pan in a store, step back ladies, that hunk of man is all mine.



***Let me say that I find it completely adorable that he does this. It's like men kicking tires of a new car they want to buy. In our case, it's pans... and I forgot to mention that he has mad culinary skills and I am very lucky that I have a husband that likes to cook.

Carry on, Rock on witcha bas selves....

Oh my goodness, that is HYSTERICAL! Please tell me when you go pan shopping again so I can spy and watch.

So funny! Well, I guess you don't want to go home with the wrong pan, although you might go home with a brain damaged husband!!

Can I borrow him to go cookware shopping with me? I am still looking for that perfect set...

That is hilarious! I've never heard of it before either. Now I know what to do when shopping for pans next time...and take my boyfriend with me! (I am NOT hitting my own head! LOL)

My husband loves kitchen stores too ... but I can't say I've ever seen him test pots and pans like that.

Does your hubby bruise easy? I hope not.
