    Grilling (The softer side).....

    Received this in an email. Thought it was fitting to share. Should stir some controversy....

    We are about to enter the summer soon and BBQ season. Therefore it is
    important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor
    cooking activity, as it's the only type of cooking a 'real' man will do,
    probably because there is an element of danger involved.

    When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put
    into motion:

    Routine...
    (1) The woman buys the food.
    (2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
    (3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with
    the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is
    lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.

    Here comes the important part:
    (4) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.

    More routine....
    (5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
    (6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning.



    He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with
    the situation.


    Important again:
    (7) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT

    TO THE WOMAN.

    More routine....
    (8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins,

    sauces, and brings them to the table.
    (9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

    And most important of all:
    (10) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
    (11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed 'her night off.' And,

    upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just

    no pleasing some women....
