Kitchen Humor

My friend Bertie was having a moving sale today and I offered to go help her load Ron's truck with all her goodies (the sale was taking place off our mountain...no one would drive all the way up here for a moving sale...along the main road).  While piling boxes into the truck, I came upon this beautiful cast iron snowman pan...knowing how I love winter, you must also know I had to have this item...I asked her if I could buy it but both she and Ron insisted I take it.  Woo hoo, made me very happy...I will treasure this little pan that will require many repeat trips into the oven with luscious fillings since there are only 6 little baking areas...but I feel like a little girl who came across a much longed after special item!
But kitchen humor comes now (no pun intended, you'll get it in a minute...I hope I'm not offending anyone).  After the truck was loaded, we went inside to warm up a bit...it was only 29F...and Bertie emerges from the back room with a grin on her face and something behind her back.  She pulls out two pot holders, giggles, and says "wait, how do I do this" and hands them to me.  She says "lift that" meaning the apron on the right...lo and behold it appears to be a naked woman (nature's protection of a woman's personal parts was present)...I laughed out loud, a little stunned that Bertie possessed this item...and then she said, "OK, put your finger in there and see what you find", speaking of the fly of the pants...now I'm a little hesitant, knowing darn well what I would find...sure enough, it feels (and looks if you look closely at the right side of the fly) like this little pot holder is happy to see me!  Most surprising?  It's not got the same 'nature's protection' as the female one, but the unit has some colored cloth that makes it's identification absolute. 

Some days, it's a good sense of humor that gets you through.  I will treasure these pot holders for the rest of my life...Bertie, I love you girl!  You do make me laugh!!!  Two unexpected treasures in one day...life is good!

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,

You have to have some humour to get you through for sure. I'm in the city for about two weeks. I'll need every bit I can find to stand the hectic change of pace. - Margy
