BBQ Season is open and running


As we are now in the BBQ season I thought it would be important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this outdoor cooking ritual,
as it's the only type of cooking a real man will do, probably
because there is an element of danger involved. When a man
volunteers to do the BBQ, the following chain of events is put into
motion:


1. The woman buys the food.
2. The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes
dessert.
3. The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray
along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand. Here comes the important part:
4. THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.
5. The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
6. The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning.
He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.

7. THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.

8. The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces and brings them to the table.
9. After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.
And most important of all:
10. Everyone PRAISES THE MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking
efforts.
11. The man asks the woman how she enjoyed "her night off" and,
upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women!

Happy BBQ Season to thoughtful men everywhere....
