You will never look at a cup of rice the same way again
While the “haha dads can’t do anything right” trope is beyond tired, sometimes men are just genuinely clueless about some things. Especially when it comes to objects of a, uh, delicate nature.
Like Cindy Hobbs’ husband, who was left to his own devices with getting dinner on the table. And found one “device” particularly useful when it came to measuring out rice.
Cindy shared the following text exchange on her Facebook business page, Breastmilk Jewellery – Heart Infused Keepsakes. Enjoy.
“What is this doing in the rice?”
“Menstalony soup?” Can’t. Stop. Laughing.
Cindy tells Scary Mommy earlier that same day, her toddler got ahold of her menstrual cup and brought it into the kitchen. Being a mom of three, Cindy got distracted after wrangling it from her and left it in the kitchen by accident. She went about her day, the cup stayed in the kitchen, and poof! Perfect rice scooper! Or so her husband thought when he took over in the kitchen later.
“Just so happened I placed it right next to the rice he had sitting there,” she commented on the Facebook post. “It was clean by the way.”
She says she quickly realized the post was going viral and had a “what the hell have I done” moment, but is ultimately amused with the reactions. She says her husband sees the funny side of it now, but initially was “horrified” when he realized his measuring cup wasn’t exactly intended for measuring.
“My husband is BAD in the kitchen and I should have never trusted him,” Cindy tells Scary Mommy. “He can’t cook at all, he burns toast, makes lumpy gravy, butchers fried eggs…he’s hopeless. But he’s constantly making me laugh and I wouldn’t have him any other way.”
