Yes.

No.


I can't help it if took so long for the duck to thaw. To be honest I had to run cold water into it yesterday just to get the neck and sauce packet out as they were still frozen to the duck.

Method for thawing frozen duck:

FrankZ - "Ducky, you're heart is as cold as ice today. What's wrong?"

SO - "I took you three days to get our Valentine's dinner thawed! That's what's wrong!"

"But my beatiful, lovely, bestest girl, I started 2 days before Vaneltine's day. I didn't know it would take so long."

"Well if you didn't keep the fridge a half degree above freezing, you might have had a chance."

"But then the beer would be too warm."

"So, you're telling me that your cold beer is more important than my Valentine's Day dinner?"

"Um, no, no. I was keeping the beer cold for you."

"That's why you drank 2/3rds of it in front of that stupid basketball game."

"I'll buy more, and your favorite Kind."

"When?"

"Tonight."

"And flowers?"

"Yes Ducky, and flowers."

"And chocolate, and i'm not talking the cheap stuff."

"(heavy sigh) Yes dear, and chocolates."

Silence

"Frank."

"Yes dear."

"Why aren't you in the car yet?"

"Oh, I'm sorry, Ducky. I'm heading out right now."

FrankZ hastens out of the house and down to the local Costco and picks up the flowers, beer, and chocolates." He hurries back home to find his Ducky sitting on the sofa, waiting for him. He puts the beer in the fridge and brings her the flowers and chocolates.

"Sit here beside me, Frank." she beckons seductively.

He sits. She drapes her legs across his lap.

the rest is up to FrankZ.

And that's how you thaw a duck-y. (I wish they had a tongue in cheek smiley,)

FrankZ, I know your home isn't like the fictitious story above. I just had one of those moment where I had to spin a yarn. And you were a handy subject with your frozen duck. Give your SO a big hug, and go roast a duck. You know you want to.

Naw, I don't get any steamier than that, and rarely go in that direction at all. I ride the high road as much as possible. Just sometimes, there's a dip in the road, a little one.

Is it just me, or is it a bit warm in here?

I said it was fictitious. She brought you seafood? How do I get that kind of treatment? DW doesn't care for seafood, except for lobster and shrimp.

If I could explain it then it would be in a book and I would make a fortune.

Or she is just a sweetie. One or the other.

She bought it but I cooked it. That keeps her from being crabby.

Frank; I'm in awe. The spotlight was turned on you, for no reason except you were there. You've been teased, and have given exceptional responses. Your wit is admirable, as is your ability to take a lighthearted jab. Good job. There are many who would fold under less pressure. You now belong to the Joe Cool club, along with Snoopy, me, and a few other great people.

FrankZ =

What! There is no Joe Cool club. But I thought there was one. Ah well, if there was one, you'd be the newest member.
