Dueling Kitchen Appliances

The Fiance and I spent part of our weekend in pre-Cana - the Catholic Church's proscribed pre-marital counseling for engaged couples.

It was pretty interesting and entertaining. We both got a lot out of it, and learned a lot about each other and our mutual expectations for marriage.

Our sessions were led by an elderly couple, Mr. and Mrs. P, who have been married for 37 years, and who have 12 children!

To me, the most interesting (and giggle-inducing) part was the Sexuality discussion.

Mrs. P stood before the class and said to us, in her prim and proper voice,

"Never forget, men and women are different.

Men are like microwave ovens - they're always ready to go on a moment's notice!"

"... But women take longer to get going..you could say they're more like slow cookers!"

This analogy got a huge laugh from all of us.

Now the Fiance and I know what kitchen appliances we need to add to our wedding registry.
