The remark in question was the, to me, novel idea of having a Pampered Chef party for men. The men in my life can cook, but I would never have thought of them going to a PC party.
Indeed. Well stated, PF.

Dawg, I thought my beloved old "chill bowl" came from PC, but maybe they no longer make it. It's one of my favorite kitchen items for keeping a salad really really cold. Here's one you may be interested in from Amazon. I think I'll order another.

Dawg, Himself got this set of nesting measuring cups for me about a dozen years ago. I use them all the time, wash in either top or bottom rack of dishwasher, and love them! Little pricey, but I would think your DH thinks you're worth every penny. If he doesn't, well I see even MORE shopping in your future???

And THIS is how great ideas are born. My daughter would probably start a business like this if she had the capital. And she would not offer "pink tools".

I might attend that. I love power tools too, but I'm not so fond of those selling parties. I've been to two Tupperware parties and bought some good stuff, but... Maybe if it was all friends. The people at those parties were, well, nice enough, but not the kind of people with whom I would usually spend time.

One party was through a job. We went to a Chinese restaurant. They were pointing and staring at me, "She's eating with chop sticks!"

I'd go to a tool party...not the pink stuff either, but I wouldn't mind it sized for my hands. Somehow my toolkit ended up integrated with Shrek's tools, including the tool bag I bought.

That's why you want a strange colour, preferably one that one's SO doesn't like, is actually averse to.

I would get pink tools, but Stirling is colour blind and he wouldn't notice.
