We're on a House Tour RIGHT NOW. So far I've heard,

"Are you a chef?"

I'm wearing a chef coat with the name Chef Leah embroidered on it.. The brochure says the house is owned by an artist and a chef. And the greeter at the door says, "the owners are an artist and a chef."

One woman just put her arm around me and said, "Your cakes are beautiful. They're the kind you want to wipe you butt with."

I think she meant that the cake went to her butt as in makes her gain weight.

But still . . .

To add to the humor... I haven't met anyone that didn't like toilet paper! lol I have no idea what the lady may have meant by that.

How odd. My first thought was that she thinks your cakes look soft and fluffy.

Maybe she thinks the 3-tier ones make her think of 3-ply TP??

Self-censorship is a good thing. Some people have no clue. I blame this "say whatever's on your mind" mentality on reality TV. Whatever happened to discretion?

Wow, what the heck is an asinine statement like that supposed to even mean? Sorry you had to deal with idiots today.

Did you say 'No' when they asked you if you were a chef???

That lady needs some serious medication--or she's overdosing--I'm stunned & sorry she said that to you.

What kind of House Tour is this???

It's a Holiday House Tour here in Louisville. I really think the lady just meant that she gains weight when she eats cake. You know, like "I could eat these two doughnuts, but it would be more efficient to just glue them to my thighs, 'cause that's where they'll end up anyway."

So cool!

That's just a bizarre thing to say. So odd.

Asking if you are a chef could have been a conversation starter even if it was obvious. But the other thing is weird. People are weird.

icon_surprised.gificon_cry.gif What did you say back to her?! I just wanted to say thank you for posting this, I have had a bad day and those comments and the responses have made me laugh so hard and I'm in a public place icon_smile.gif Hope the rest of the tour goes smoothly. I just love holiday house walks.

Even if she was implying the weight gain thing, wiping your butt with something... omg lmao, it's like a scene from "The Office"

Or, she might have had a little bit of brain damage.

(Not casting aspersions. Happens to most all of us at one time or another. We just don't notice until it's a *big one*.) icon_surprised.gif

The Tour was delightful but we're all exhausted. I had a party to go to tonight (professional thing. My name was on the guest list and they'd know if I didn't attend.)

Yes, the house is pretty decked out. 5 trees, evergreen garland, crystal garland, lots of (flameless) "candles." We also spent a lot of time and $ this year getting ready:
new wood floors in the living room, hallway and dining room, new crown molding in those same rooms, new paint, crown molding, countertop, light fixtures in our bed/bath and my office got new paint and a new wood floor.

These things always provide material for stories . . .

I can't imagine what I would say if someone said that to me.

Noob question here: What's a House Tour? Is it a Louisville thing? I'm from MN.

Holiday House tours are pretty common here in MO. Same with Garden tours in the summer.
Some charity gets people with historic/expensive/very nicely decorated (mix and match)houses to agree to hordes of strangers coming in and sell tickets for tours. Proceeds go to the charity for whatever.....
My hats off to those that open their houses. I wouldn't be able to do it.....

Sounds like she had a little too much Christmas cheer trying to keep warm going from house to house. Ha! Pam from Bama

Well, after she wipes her butt with your cake, I hope she washes her hands! LOL!

I'm sorry, I read that and couldn't stop laughing! Boy can you pick 'em! icon_lol.gif

Hey Leah, on another subject, where's your avatar picture??? I haven't seen it in a while!

LOL! The toilet paper butt thing is seriously weird. And hello - how many times do they have to be told Chef before they get that you're a Chef?

When I make a cake with cream cheese icing, my sister tells me that she just might as well spread the icing on her hips. This lady was probably trying to say the same thing, it just didn't come out quite right.

Haven't been on in a while and this is the first post I read. LOL!

You know, I used to work with a girl who had one of those fetishes where you sit in food...her favorite was canned beans. I have no idea what you get out of that...except maybe a rash.
