Still Waiting

See that knife up there? It`s my favorite knife, it`s been my favorite knife for 30 years.

You might ask, why is she writing a post about a stupid knife? Well, i`ll tell you why.

It has earned a place of honor in my home, besides, what survives 30 years without change? Save for the little melted spot on the handle, this knife is as sharp as it was the day i bought it.

Skip and I were at the mall, doing what young couples do at the mall, shopping till we dropped when we stumbled upon a display in the mall hall. A man was showing the amazing sharpness of these knives. It`s the knife that can cut a cow in half, was their advertizing motto. Well, who would`nt want a knife that can cut a cow in half? You never know when you might have to. I bought two. I gave one to my Mother, incase she, you know, found a cow.

When the kids were growing up, and i had lost my knife, or rather misplaced it, i`d ask, who took my knife that can cut a cow in half? Well, it always turned up, and i`d be all happy again. So this knife has always been known by that long name.

No cow has crossed my path in all these years, not one, nor did one ever cross paths with my Mother. So, i can`t swear that this knife will cut a cow in half, all i can say is, it has never failed me while cutting anything in half, and it is my favorite bread cutting knife, ahhh such clean edges it makes!

So i dedicate this blog to my favorite knife, and, of course, i am still waiting for that damn cow.

bec... are you sure it was ally who cut the cheese? she was just a baby back then. I tend to think it was adam... But, you know how my memory works...its good but so damn short..LOL!

Bec said...

I guess it could have been Adam or Ally, I get the A team confuesed! All I really know for sure is if it was something naughty (which cutting the cheese on the new couch is definatly in the naughty catigory) someone from the A team is responsible!!
