Son, a woman is like a beer. They smell good, they look good, you’d step over your own mother just to get one! But you can’t stop at one. You wanna drink another woman!

Cheers to a Happy New Year people.

Most people don’t even know what I am…

I used to be useful, a flat-bottomed spout-stoppered vessel to hold liquid condiments such as olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I am not, as some think, a salt and pepper set, though sometimes they do hang round.

Derived from the french word crue meaning ‘earthen pot’
First culinary use in the late 17th century.

This age, not so much…

Before you top your self or end up in a dumpster consider your options:

a] A quieter, decorative life on the shelf

b] If single reinvent yourself as a small vase or objet d’art

or

c] Perk yourself up and get back to work. You are still in great shape.
Someone will want  you.
