Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

SWMBO??

O.K. guys, I know for the most part this is a tongue in cheek joke, but are there some of you out there that really have to live that way?  We have both provided throughout our 20 years of marriage, but my job has always been the largest source of income.  She has never wanted for anything nor complained about what she didn't have.  When I show up with a new egg or eggcessory she just jabs a little and asks what I'm going to do with that.  Better yet, when I show up with a new gun she says "cool! when can we go shoot it".  I'm the first to admit I'm a lucky man for  finding her, but how many of you here live in fear of the SWMBO?  Or are there any of you that will admit it?  :)

    Anyone who uses that acronym lives in fear, by definition. 

    But hey, what do I know?  I'm divorced.  :))

    Plus you work in a profession with a 97/3 female to male ratio. I feel soooo bad for you ;)

    I will gladly admit it. We live in a completely opposite relationship, in the views of "normal" marriages. She is the breadwinner and has the traditionally male job of law enforcement. I have the traditionally female job of Registered Nurse. None of that is the reason though. This is why: I carry a stethoscope to work, she carries a gun. I can auscultate heart and lung sounds, she can make them stop. ;)
    Noone is going to beat that reply.  The last sentence is priceless!  Nicely done sir!

    The Spouse was the 2011 Iron Woman in the Florida State Muzzle Loading Association competition.  Involved black powder rifle, pistol, and smoothbore shooting, as well as hawk and knife throwing.  By God I might not be required to obey her, but I take it under serious consideration

    I obey her but only because she always says I don't care when I ask or why you asking me. We have no rugrats yet and make decent money, I am stock piling all the toys I can get now before its too late.

    You're a smart dude. I got my egg for Father's Day. Smack my head every day for not getting one a year earlier when I got my dad one.

    I use the term out of respect for the woman I love who has been my companion and best friend for more than 40 years. We both work, make similar salaries, and buy whatever we want whenever we want with no complaining.  I feel very blessed in my life with a wonderful wife, children, and grandchildren.

    The problem with that interpretation is that it isn't always conducive with another acroynm with the same letters...HWMGAP "He who must get a piece".:)

    I say it tongue in cheek. No fear of my wife, but you know the saying. "Happy wife, happy life". We do have a mutual understanding that all large purchases are discussed first, though. Sometimes the lines are blurry on what a large purchase is. ;)

    I'm a believer in efficiency through division of responsibility. Somehow I've managed a backyard fiefdom that SWMBO has overlooked (or lets me think so since I mow it.)

    Like Griff, it is tongue in cheek, with a sense of flattery. I have used the term to describe the girl I married 42 years ago for at least 46 years. Based on the novel by H Rider Haggard, a favourite of mine. The movie starring Ursula Andress (also THE Bond girl - at the time a woman idolized by most teen-aged boys), was popular in the late sixties.
    In our generation the male was often considered to be the "head of the household", however as noted in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the woman is the neck, and tells the man where and what to look at, again - tongue in cheek.

    This is absolutely hilarious!!!



    I live by SWMBO for a few different reason,

     1) I'm very blessed and have an amazing beautiful godly wife and mother of my children, so I take care of her needs and wants. 

    2) It makes life easier!! But on the other hand, I am the authority in our household, she respects me and lets me have my hobbies and free time  when it works

    3) She wears the pants, and if I behave, she lets me get in them
