    Humor - FemBot Helps Me Que

    The scene: Early one weekend morning, not long after my girlfriend has moved in with me, I’m in the kitchen doing the prep work to smoke up a grande sized pork butt. The night before, she had offered to help me... even though “touching raw meat” = “ICK!” for her, she knows my love of bbq, and has decided that “ICK!” is outweighed by doing something I love together. 💖

    The background: my girlfriend earned the nickname “FemBot” from me because until she knows you extremely well, she doesn’t like showing emotions so much.

    One thing that I found endearing and funny in our early years was the lack of expressing humor. I introduced her to the movie “Hot Fuzz” which I find riotously funny and laughed all the way through. She never so much as chuckled through the whole thing. At the end I told her I’m sorry she didn’t like it, and she replied “I DID laugh. On the INSIDE.” 😂😂😂 So yeah, expressing emotions and humor (much less PRACTICING them) are things we’ve worked hard at over the years. 😊

    The story: The big day is here! 😃 Being an early riser, I’ve already got the massive pork butt rinsed, patted dry and on the cutting board, with the rub beside it when the love of my life comes wandering her adorable keester downstairs, and I’m working on mixing up some sauce on the other side of the kitchen.

    Girlfriend: Okay, what do I do? 😃

    Me: Here’s some cooking gloves so you don’t have to touch the meat with your bare hands. Just sprinkle some of this on the meat, and pat it on. Cover the whole thing like that, and when the rub stops sticking to the meat it’s ready to go! 😃

    Girlfriend: Gotcha!

    Im so happy! This wonderful woman loves me SO MUCH that she wants to get involved in a passion of mine and share in my joy! 💖 I’ve got heart bubbles popping around my head like a cartoon character as I resume working on the sauce.

    As as we’re working away, I’m half listening to what she’s doing and half paying attention to what I’m doing. I want this to be a positive experience for her, so I’m listening for signs of struggling or distress so I can ride to the rescue.

    (sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle, pat, pat, pat)

    (sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle, pat, pat, pat)

    This goes on for a few minutes and I hear no signs of distress, so I refocus most of my attention on the sauce. The sounds behind me continue... but then begin to CHANGE a bit...

    (sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle, pat, pat, PAT)

    (sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle, PAT, PAT, PAT!)


    ”You like that, dont you?”


    ”Who’s a DIRTY little pork butt?”


    ”Oh, you’re a kinky little piggy, aren’t you?”


    I finally turn around to see my girlfriend looking at me with one of the biggest smiles I’ve ever seen, and eyes sparkling with mischief! 😃

    People, we freaking DIED laughing together! 😂😂😂

    When we finally got control of ourselves some while later...

    Girlfriend: I did a funny, huh? 😃

    Me: Yes you did my little FemBot. 😊

    Girlfriend: It was a good one too, huh?!? 😃😃😃

    Me: It was indeed! That humor chip we had installed is integrating nicely. 😊💖 Are you done with the pork butt love?

    Girlfriend: Just a little more to go. 😇👍

    After a smooch, I walk across the kitchen to go back to work on the sauce. Just as I pick up the next ingredient -




    It was years ago, and I’ve giggle-snorted every time I’ve cooked a pork butt to this day! 😊

    Aint love grand? 💕💕💕

      I don’t think she got a response... but on the other hand, I didn’t hear her getting any argument either. 😂😂😂

            Oh gosh FireMan, I’m not even sure... I had to ask the girlfriend when she moved in with me! 😂😂😂 She says spring of 2016, but it feels much further back than that to me... still, I trust her memory much more than my own. 😇

            As to her helping with the que, yes and no. Handling raw meat still squicks her out (for example she leaves the area when I’m trimming up a full packer brisket lol), but sides and desserts? She’s all over that! 👍
