HNT: The Wurst

Half-Nekkid Thursday originates here, and here are the rules.
For my first entry, by your leave, I will post this lovely apron that I had to stare at (at eye level) at Leigh Yung Li's barbecue. Her husband, Mr. Li, was wearing it. He was cooking wieners at the time. Somehow, I didn't feel the same awe that I felt when I caught the live show in Florence.

I wasn't sure if the Half-Nekkid person has to be me; if so, next week I will put on the apron.

At the risk of saying something considered sophomoric or un-PC for a middle-aged man, let me just say 'Nice Photo - Happy HNT' ;-)

Happy HNT! How exciting. I must agree with Jenny though, very unsanitary.

(And yes, the one in Florence has buttocks, which always commands my attention.)

I always forget HNT, since most of my life is spent half nekkid anyway.

Maybe next time....

I really need to get him to come to my house and cook me every meal. This would really help me out with my diet, cause it's lunch time and I am not hungry anymore.

If you think half nekkid Thrusdays are fun, you should stop by the blog world trailerpark and see White Trash Fridays, or as we like to call it, WTF.

Leigh Yung Li said...

Well, I must begin by saying I had to ponder this post for at least a good 24 hours before I could begin to think of what to say about this one. After all, it was my husband in this apron. How does one even begin to deal with that, let alone deal with that when others post things such as "EEEEEEWWWWWWW!!! GGRRRRROOOOSSSSSS! This man was cooking food?!! That is DISGUSTING!" and the like.? For a moment I felt like I did two years ago when my students were obsessed with the website ratemyteacher.com and I would check it and go into a tailspin on a bad day when it said "Mrs. Yung Li should definitely not have been a teacher. She should have been something like a crossing guard or a lion tamer." Then I toughened up and thought, hell, I don't know the people responding to my husband's apron photo and they don't know me and I might make a damn good lion tamer, so there!

And what if my husband is not always sanitary with food?--well, you guys might be onto something and that has nothing whatsoever to do with the apron!
So, suffice it to say, with each sentence I write here, I am feeling stronger and stronger. It is a really cool apron if I do say so myself. It was pretty much the hit of the party. I offered my husband $50 to wear it to work one day but he declined (it would be a poor career move for him). Another cool thing about this apron is that my younger sister got it for him when she was vacationing in Italy..I mean talk about a clever souvenir! Most people just send postcards or make you look at their pictures for hours...maybe pick something up in the airport if their plane is delayed--not my sister. She has that little cooky, sharp, witty, and rebellious side that I would say is characteristic of myself and Spinning Girl.

Currently, since that eventful evening nearly a week ago, the apron has been draped over a chair in our kitchen as it got a stain (something like BBQ sauce) on it and we are trying to decide if we should take it to the drycleaner. What do we say to them? "Please take special care of this--it's very sensitive." ?? Well I long (oops, sorry to write 'long') to hear your suggestions.

Spinning Girl said...

Despair not, dear Leigh Yung Li. I believe that to the layperson, who have seen neither Mr. Li nor Michelangelo's David in the flesh, it appears that your husband is indeed naked and cooking for his guests. Little do they know that beneath the apron lies a physique more perfect, more chiseled, than any the Italian Master could have conceived. They should be honored for him to come within 50 paces of their mouths, much less put food in it.

As for cleaning the apron--I recommend that back-alley place that also does taxes. They'll never talk.

why does leigh not have a blog??why why why?

sg-don't be knocking the "italian masters" them renaissance dudes are some of my favorite artists.

leigh i thought a good old mustard plaster took care of all sorts of stains...or is that coughs?
