What did you say?

I was reading in the living room when I heard my wife from the kitchen excitedly saying, “The whisk is one of my favorite kitchen tools.”

I put my book down and asked her to repeat what she had said, just to make sure I heard her correctly.


So now I am sitting there, book in my lap, pondering, “People have favorite kitchen tools?”

And after a minute or so I am thinking, “My wife has a favorite kitchen tool, and it’s the whisk?”

And finally, “It took me nearly 40 years of sharing life with this woman to learn this about her?”

This weekend we celebrate 40 years of marriage and I gotta tell you, I love it everytime I learn something new about her.


  1. Wow. I cannot believe it’s been that long. You were just newlyweds when you came to us in Va Beach. Happy Anniversary. Yes we learn something new about our spouses, even after many years of living. Tom shared with me not long ago how he’s always seen in his minds eye the days of the week in colors. He even described each day and what color he sees. 🙂 I love it.

    • That is quintessential Tom.
