I Had No Idea

The King and I spent the weekend running errands and just shopping around. He wants to get a grill now that he can cook outside year round so Saturday morning we went to PetSmart, Home Depot, and Lowe's. I know, PetSmart doesn’t have grills but it was right beside Home Depot and I needed a few things for the fish tanks. I was almost a very bad girl at PetSmart but the King helped me refrain from getting a puppy......even though it was a really, really, cute and sweet puppy that was abandoned at a cabin when he was very small and almost died BUT I was a good girl none-the-less because the rescue group is a “no kill” organization so I knew the not-so-little guy was safe from harm. As we left the store we began our excursion "window shopping" for grills.

I had no idea…

Grill shopping for guys is a totally different experience than it is for girls. Don’t get me wrong, I L.O.V.E. cooking on a grill but I can get the same result from this:

as I can with this:



King wanted this:


Not only was his choice a tad expensive and include a mini refrigerator, but it was a bit cumbersome as well. I had no idea how we would have gotten it home in the SUV….even if we had had a trailer to load it on.

As I watch King position himself in front of this behemoth of a monster-grill, I swear I heard angels singing as he stood dead center of the mammoth component, caressing the surface like that of a young, nubile, virgin sacrifice. He struck a Jesus pose and prayed to the grill-gods of Valhalla. It was a beautiful thing to behold. It brought a tear to my eye just imagining him in nothing but a chef's hat and apron cooking one inch thick porterhouse steaks off the back porch.
Yes siree, it was a beautiful thing!

Get a Weber gas grill. You will not regret it.

I don't even cook OR grill, but that is one nice looking piece of equipment...

And if that is all he is gonna be wearing I would like to be invited to dinner.

Kthxbye.

I had no idea grills could be so orgasmic!

HOLY SHIT! First off, I had no idea they even SOLD grills like that in stores! Looks like something that's in a restaurant kitchen or something!!! (Spoken like the true vegetarian I am, eh??)

But second, and most important, although I can totally understand your fantasy of him grilling naked, I....sorry, mind wandered there for a moment...please don't let him do that, because he mind end up scorching one of his niblets. And that wouldn't be good for anyone.

Oh, but if you decide not to take my advice, I want pictures.

LOL

Too funny around here it is grills and guns! The hallelujah chorus would be appropriate.

Yeah. You got me. But it didn't get spit out. No - that's too friggin' normal. No. Out through the nose. Although, that little picture you drew with the apron and chef's hat was just the opposite effect. It's like you giveth - and then you taketh away.

Did he tweak the knobs? I hear if you tweak the knobs you can stoke a pretty hot fire.

Men and their grills... LOL

I've never seen a grill make a man take on a Jesus pose before. But it is a while since I last went to church.

I want to go to Chris's church.....sounds like they grill out! Anyone with me?

I'll bring my bratwurst.

I'm the griller in the family so I would have loved that last one and reacted the same way. Only with lady parts.

Mrs. R said...

That looks more like a stove you'd see in a restaurant kitchen than a backyard grill. Really, all that just to cook burgers? Men...
