I Want to Marry a Chef


Have you ever searched, married to a chef, on Twitter?

If you search #marriedtoachef, you’ll see all of us tweeting about our lives as chef wives.

But try searching, married to a chef, no hash tag, just the phrase.

It’s hysterical the number of people that say, “I want to marry a chef,” on Twitter because they think the chef would cook for them all the time!   

Here’s an example.

I want to marry a chef

The tweet in the middle is actually from a fellow chef wife (Hi Juliana!) writing about being married to a chef.  (You can see the post here.)

But look at the other two.  I have no idea who these women are.  I’m sure they are very nice and just want someone to cook for them.  I just think it’s funny and sad at the same time.  People just don’t get it!

If they would just think about it for 2 seconds, they might think differently.

How is it possible for a chef to be working in a restaurant and be home cooking you dinner at the same time?

This is why we all married or are dating a chef, right?

Now in case you stumbled on this page from Google and are not married to or dating a chef, you might want to check out these posts to read the truth on the subject:

OK. Rant over. Sorry about that!  Search it every now and then on Twitter and have a nice laugh.  Maybe even respond to some of them with the truth.  (Kerilyn – @Married2aChef is great at doing that!) Oh and while you’re searching, why not follow me on Twitter?
