Kitchen Complete (Almost)
So the kitchen is almost done. Don’t worry about the tile surrounding the window and door–they’re actually already done, but I don’t have a photo of it yet. The only thing left is to stain the parlor doors and the window surrounds and to tile the pizza oven. The tile has been ordered for the pizza oven, but it hasn’t come in yet, which is actually a good thing because the oven has to be cured before it can be tiled. If you don’t know what it means to cure an oven, google it. Which is another way of saying that I don’t know what it means, either. Thank God Google always has my back. Which brings up a totally unrelated, but nonetheless troubling and way too frequent, occurrence. Before and during almost every event we get at least one call, and sometimes more, in which people ask for directions. How is that possible? If you are one of these people, please take your rotary phone and donate it to a museum for which you will receive a tax deduction, then use the money you’ll receive for said deduction and make a much-needed investment in a smart phone. Please! Lest any of you worry that what I’ve just said will offend the above-described direction seekers, let me allay your fears by saying that they will never, ever see this blog. And if they do, problem solved. Anyway, sorry about the tangent. I hope you enjoy the new kitchen. After all of this work on the new kitchen, which actually goes all the way back to 2013, the question that remains is: Will I put the new exhibition kitchen to use in the way my father had originally intended but never actually did? That is, for events that actually incorporate the exhibition kitchen into the event itself, such as cooking demonstrations, cooking classes, or team building events. Or will I follow in my father’s footsteps and ride my Harley head-on into a semi?
