The potato masher situation …. 😀
When Sir and I were just dating, before He even proposed I think, we went shopping for supplies for my first apartment. I needed a potato masher. Sir always did like my cooking although at the time it wasn’t nearly as good as what it could have been! LOL Anyway, we went together and He found one that looked like this …
I wasn’t sold on the idea, I was hoping for something different and told Him as much, politely of course, we have always had that between us, but I did tell Him I was thinking of something else. He proceeded to tell me how well it would work and He was sure it was the right choice, so like a good little girl I let Him choose! That was over 20 years ago and I have disliked that potato masher ever since! For a variety of different reasons I have a hard time using it, I’m short the counter tops are too high and I really can’t get enough leverage to make the task easy. On the bright side I get a very good arm work out …. but not really what I wanted every time I mash potatoes.
I have hinted and pointed for years that I would prefer something that looks more like this! It is much easier to clean and for me much easier to use. He has said to just grab one over time but I guess my mind tells me that He bought the first one so He should change it out for the new one. It was His choice and therefore His to change? I don’t know, things that get stuck in our heads don’t always have to make sense they just happen!
So finally last month, after more than 20 years of using that darn potato masher Sir finally brought home the new one! 😀 I have already tried it out twice and must say for me it works wonderfully! It is so much easier to use and does a great job of making silky smooth potatoes.
Sir finally asked me if I liked it and I said ‘Yes Sir!’ and he mentioned that I could have gotten a new one anytime but I told Him that to me it was going against what He had wanted and therefore I couldn’t. So He says that I’m a nutty bunny, and I say Yes Sir, but just for you!
He’s starting to see and remember all these types of things now, I think my secret is out! XD
Love You Sir! ❤ and my new masher!! LOL
