Help me help him

edited 9:20PM in EggHead Forum
It is my understanding that you are the people that I have lost my husband to. I understand that he is cooking our family supper more, but I would like to see him at some time in the future. The only time we can get together is when I tell him I am going to the meat market.
He is making fun of the neighbors. He laughs at them when they start to grill out. Most of them have moved their grills to the backyard because they don't have an "EGG". He stands outside and looks at his egg the same way he used to look at me. It is getting frustrating. The main reason I wanted to write this is to let him know that--
"IN NO WAY HAS HE EVER FOOLED ME" I have found his mini egg in the garage. If he would like it back, all I need is a public apology, on this forum.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    Mrs. Orio Kid,
    When I read your post i had to look to see if my wife posted it, it could have been her words exactly, right down to the mini egg. We went to the meat market together today, i do cook the family supper more, and I have chuckled at a neighbor or two. But that doesn't mean we still don't just adore our spouses!!!! Thanks a great post to bring a great day to a close.[p]Chuck

    Mrs. Orio Kid, ummmm, actually he is storing that egg in your garage for me!, ya!, thats it!, it`s really mine.

    Darn it Mop, you stole my line! Bridget, Mop's the one that got the kid started on the egg! Really! For a good dose of revenge, you should forward the little green husband snatcher to MY address :) It would be most helpful to first fill it with ice and longnecks. Just to help out, I'll pay the shipping for you.[p]Go easy on the kid, it's better than him gettin' a girlfriend ;) My only regret is that I don't have more time for (you thought I'd say my family didntcha!) SAAAMOKINNNNN!!!

    Mrs. Orio Kid,[p]Sad, I feel somewhat sorry for Orio. He has looked at the food he use to make for his beloved family and realized that plastic covered food trays of innocuous "TV Diner" type food he has been Q'ing was not good enough for "his" family. He toiled constantly in search of a better method and grill. He found the Egg and the forum (aka the driving instructors of Egg'ing) and worked to perfect his art. Obviously he has done so and he even shares his good fortune with the neighbors. And YOU mock him rather than praise him. Now he has stollen Mops Mini (perhaps like the Linburg baby case of 1932) but it was in the sole effort of improving his families cooking lifestyle. No longer do you have to do ALL the cooking, now you have help and you failed to appreciate your husbands noble effort for eggcellence. [p]You should find him, hug and kiss him and drop to your knees and proclaim him as BBQ GOD of Mt. Carmel,Illinois (very near my home of Alton, Il btw). Perhaps the stolen mini is meant for you so the two of you can grill "TOGETHER" out doors. [p]smell.gif

    Mrs. Orio Kid,[p]I have been planning my own private "best post o the year" contest. My rules, my judges, my house. So far this year, two posts are in the running for best post. One of them was KennyG's post where he writes in from a business trip and announces that he is thinking of bringing the egg along on his trips, because the local steak houses are bad. The other one - "Mrs. Orio Kid" - is yours. I'll let y'all know at the end of the year who wins and what, if anything, either of you will get.
