The hubby has a lot of tools. Among the category of “men that are handy with tools” I’m pretty sure he is not unique in that regard. If you ever try to have a conversation with any of these men about why they have so many tools it will probably go something like this:
“Why do you have this <insert tool name here> tool?”
“I used that three years ago to fix the door to the attic.”
“But why didn’t you use this other <insert other tool name here> tool? It’s exactly the same.”
“No it’s not, it’s the wrong size and the handle is too long, I needed a shorter handle to fit. I could have tried using the other one, but it would have taken longer and stripped the part and I would have scraped the crap out of my knuckles. I may not use it every day, but there’s no substitute for having the right tool when you need it. ”
And that last line is the truth. There’s nothing like having the right tool handy when you need it. Whether you are working on a car and need a 3/8” deep socket and only have a 5/16” regular socket. Or you are fixing a door and need a #1 Philips head screwdriver and all you have is a ¼” flathead screwdriver. Or you are in the kitchen making a key lime pie and you NEED some lime zest and you don’t have a zester. What are you supposed to do? You could use a knife and shave some lime zest by hand. Have you ever tried it? It’s not fun. You could use a regular cheese grater, but you still have to chop it up into the little pieces and you get too much of the white stuff. I know because until I got the Chef’s Necessities 2 in 1 Zester and cheese grater that’s what I had to do. And the white stuff is gross. It’s like all bitter and not tasty. When you need orange or lemon or lime zest, you need a zester. It’s like a necessity in the kitchen. Get it? It’s a “necessity?” A Chef’s Necessity. No one ever gets my humor.
