What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 260: Kitchen Tools

15 Comments

Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

Beloved sent me the listing for the potholder above, and I decided it was so terrible, it deserved its own Etsomnia™. If Etsy is any indication, people love jokey stuff in their kitchens. Not me. I’m a very serious cook, and my kitchen is filled with only the classiest, most professional, most tasteful items.

  4. Bwah ha ha ha! I so need that last item. “Eat or Starve” has been my policy for years. My kids are pretty good eaters compared to the average kid but this particular circumstance we find ourselves living in is definitely challenging their tolerance as I have been making some peculiar concoctions of ingredients for evening meals. I am a pretty good cook so they have all been tasty but they just baulk a bit at the unfamiliar and how many times they can be served rice in one week. But I digress …

    Why are people obsessed with genital and sexual based humour in the kitchen? I don’t get it. Am I prude for thinking that doesn’t accord with food hygiene standards? I also don’t want to associate assholes with spoons. Ouch. And do people really still save pieces of chewing gum?
