55 words of warning


Splayed on the floor, he’s not getting up anytime soon.

Wiping his brow, the officer gently asks,
“You seem really upset, Ma’am. 
Can you tell me – what happened here?”

She takes a deep breath, sighs loudly,
 “He used a metal spatula on my new Calphalon pan,”
and starts slowly wiping the blood off her hands…

I'd say justifiable homicide. Excellent 55.

Never, ever, ever would I use metal on a calphalon pan. Ever. I would not want to be killed.

Oh, this is so funny, since a metal spatula is in this week's Suzie's House too. Yours is a bit more dangerous I think. :)

Silly man. Serves him right I guess. But I would let him come and cook at my house if he was willing. Anything to get out of cooking once in a while!
