Random Daily Prompt: Plead the Fifth

Daily Prompt: Plead the Fifth.

What question do you hate to be asked and why?

Do have to pick one?  Okay, fine.  I will choose.

Here is the one question I most  hate to be asked:   “Your husband must love being married to you, do you cook gourmet meals every night?”

This bugs me for a number of reasons.  First, just because I teach Culinary Arts does NOT mean that I love to cook.  I LIKE to cook, but it is not my passion.  Also, after cooking all day at work the very last thing that I want to do is cook when I get home.  Gourmet cooking is very expensive.  Last time I checked, I worked on a teacher’s salary.  Believe me that is NOT going to put a gourmet meal on the table every night.

The second reason that this bugs me is because it implies that my husband married me because I can cook.  News flash: my husband is a better cook than I am.   He’s Italian.  He learned to cook in a traditional Italian household.  The man has skill.  And truly, he does most of the cooking.

The third reason I hate this question is because I am a mother to a five year old.  If I put a gourmet meal in front of him he would just stare at it.  Nope, most of the time we are eating kid-friendly food.

Just because I teach culinary arts does not mean I am a full time culinarian, so please stop treating me like one.  Okay?  Thanks.
