¶ opening cans
every now and then I fixate on something. It enters my mind, and I just can't get it out. lately, it's been electric can openers. I want one. But not to open cans with. I want the ones that come with a motorized sharpening stone in back, because I want to sharpen my Knife.

My kitchen revolves around my Knife, and it's getting dull and needs to be sharpened. So I've been dragging stacy to Target and Walmart in search of a friggin electric can opener. But I couldn't find one that I liked. So now I'm looking online and all of a sudden I'm seeing these professional Chef's Choice Electric Knife Sharpeners that retail for $120 and I start to drool. I'm drooling over a $120 knife sharpener, damnit what's wrong with me? But I was looking for can openers, not knife sharpeners. I feel like a yuppie.

Last year, I had this ancient sharpening stone my mom gave me. When my Knife got dull, I'd wet the stone, sit at the table in our suite, and you could hear little shick! shick! sounds for minutes on end. weirded out some people. I guess the sight of a 16 ounce, 8" meat cleaver being rhythmically honed to a razor sharp edge on a whetstone can be surprising. but damnit, i just want a sharp Knife, and I can't find my stone, so I want an electric can opener.

nah, you're perfectly normal. a good life starts with good food, and good food needs to be cooked and prepared and for that you need a sharp knife. my mom continuously pesters my dad to sharpen the kitchen knifes. we have a big stone in weston. i think you can find them at home depot.

Not to say $120 for a can opener is cheap or anything but, well, I'm much more excited by this: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005REEK/ref=xs_gb_off_dtl_10_k/002-3504007-4460003?v=glance&me=ATVPDKIKX0DER

sharp Chinese butcher knives rock. I just wish they would fit into my pocket.
