So I did a "You know you're a Chef when..." that went over really well. How bout everyone builds this new one togther.?!
You know you're a knife nut when...
...you're driving down the road and in your periphery you spy a red neon sign that grabs your attention as you could swear
it says "MASAKAGE" - only to see it says, "MASSAGE."
...you derive silent pleasure when your girlfriend - whom always wants you to "touch-up the knives at home so they're sharp" - breaks the morning silence from ITK with a, "PHUCK, PHUCK, PHUCK... OWWWWW! GOD DAMN YOU BABY, THESE KNIVES ARE ALWAYS SO PHUCKIN SHARP!"
...when you're sharpening in a common area, you draw a crowd of people who watch & chuckle among themselves speaking things softly that they think you can't hear like, "he's phuckin crazy," & "look at how into it he gets."
...when there is unspoken law ITK that you NEVER dare touch Chef's knives... NEVER.. EVER!
...you're body is simply shutting down experiencing cognitive impairment from putting in 234 hours & 11 minutes over 16 days ITK, but you still find yourself back @CKTG studying current stock & profile photos, engaging statistical analysis of knives you've reviewed 10x before, commenting at the forum, etc. on your first day off in weeks.
