Aussie BBQ #2 (Happy Australia Day!)

John The Aussie

In Australia we are about to enter the barbecue season, therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this outdoor cooking activity. When a man volunteers to do the barbecue, the following chain of events is put into motion:

Routine:

The woman buys the food.

The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables and makes the dessert.

The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill – beer in hand.

The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman.

Here comes the important part:

THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL

More routine:

The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.

The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat.

Important again:

THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN

More Routine:

The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces and brings them to the table.

After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

And most important of all:

EVERYONE PRAISES THE MAN AND THANKS HIM FOR HIS COOKING EFFORTS.

The man asks the woman how she enjoyed her night off and upon seeing her annoyed reaction concludes that there is just no pleasing some women.

Now for some more Aussie songs:

For those curious, yes I can play the didgeridoo, but often I fail doing the circular breathing screwing up the song… I’ll explain later my experience with didgeridoo’s…
