I Don't Look Like I Can Cook

Awhile ago I was in a festive mood and decided to throw a little shindig at my abode and invite some friends over to partake. I have no idea what got into me but you can bet your sweet patooty that has never happened again. Anyway, I was feeling extra warm and fuzzy and took it upon myself to cook all of the food for this gathering myself as opposed to having guests bring a dish. I'm thoughtful that way.

So one by one all of my guests arrive and things are going along swimmingly. There is food, music, games and stories. Nice time was being had by all.

As the evening progressed I found myself in the kitchen talking to a few guests. One young lady who was a friend of a friend that was invited said to me, " I was a little worried about the food."

I gave her a sideways glance and asked, "Huh?" Clearly the only appropriate response to such a statement.

She goes on to further say, "You just don't look like someone that could cook." What the hell?

I mean seriously......

JStar said...

Yea I agree, that was very rude...Didnt know there was a certain look about people who can throw down in the kitchen...I can cook...but my thing is baking :)

I wouldve been a little taken aback. <_< *sigh* I guess some people still judge books by covers.

First time on this site and I just wanted to say I like your stories because it looks like they are real, taken from real life experiences :)

Queen-Size funny bone said...

what are you suppose to look like? guess no one would say that to me. I'm fat so they would know I can cook and eat.

Secretia said...

That was ignorance talking, even though her jealousy over your good looks was behind the comment. However, I think she was trying to compliment you!

Noelle said...

~nOe~ said...

Senorita said...

OMG, what the hell ??

She should be happy that you even provided food.

Bitch.

Jeni said...

Appearances can be deceiving, can't they? But I'm wondering just what does one look like that gives the aura of being able to cook? That could be looking into, don't 'cha think?

I was wondering, maybe you could post up a couple of photos of you posing in an apron and holding a frying pan. Then we could all give you our views...

Suze said...

You know my sister always says that. She still can't believe that I'm not 11. AARGH!!!

Amber said...

Dude, I'd have taken it as a compliment meaning I'm too smokin' hot to be considered a contender in the kitchen.

So, did you bury her in the backyard or do the whole 'dismember and dumpster' thing?

MysTery said...

Lol....you should have said thanks...get out. Lol jk.

I think she was complimenting you. In a really strange way. That would be the something stupid I would say to someone who was gorgeous, intelligent and really good at their job-- I mean, they shouldn't be able to cook also!

Tanyetta said...

What the hell kind of comment is that? Now do you see why I am always very hesitant about having company.

I take shit very personally when it comes to my home. I don't care if I served Capn Crunch. Sit your happy ass in the cornderr and munch away.

The hell!!!! LOL

Tanyetta said...

No seriously how does something that can or can't cook look like? Break this down for me someone. That guest was rude. Blah!
