Never have worn one. Lookin' back, there are times when I shoulda. I 'spect that if I was to start wearin' one now, Mrs Hoot would look at me in that sideways way that she has and shake her pretty little head in puzzlement.

My fella got me an apron for Christmas last year. I'd always said I wanted one because I liked how they looked, but didn't really think I was that messy of a chef. Since I'm a huge nerd and a lover of pirates, he totally picked out a perfect apron for me.

Just recently took a picture of that same apron, a few weeks short of a year after I got it. I've now accepted how often I have the habit of wiping my hands on myself... and never step into the kitchen without my apron!!

I wear one at work every day. At home I wear one if I'll be in the kitchen all day, or I'm doing something messy, like tomorrow making christmas cookies.

I have a few aprons and rarely wear them. I prefer to cook in my pajamas :)

No. I probably should, at least when making spaghetti, though.

Yes, certainly a good idea for you to wear your apron V

If I am not mistaken, that symbol on the apron is the Greek letter "Pie." A subtle hint.

I don't even own an apron. I have a large flour sack towel hanging at each end of the kitchen to wipe my hands or counter top off with. I very rarely get food on myself. I guess I have been in the kitchen long enough to know what all the bad habits and hazards are to making a mess. Only because I have been there, done that.

You would think I don't own any utensils & just use my bare hands or something

You are correct, that is the symbol for Pi

I wish I knew how to avoid those habits and hazards! Sometimes I swear a tornado must've blown through while I was cooking.

Looks to me like you use an apron correctly Vanitas. Nothing wrong with using it for what it is designed. I do appreciate the Pi-rates...that is a good pun.
