Ode to a Kitchenaid Mixer

Ode to a Kitchenaid Mixer


Oh Kitchenaid mixer, I would love you so

I would use you on high, and I would use you on low

I would whip up some treats for all my friends and neighbors

Cakes of any shape and size, cookies of every flavor

Black and Decker hand mixer, you’ve done your job well

You’re a mixer that I cherish, one that I will never sell

Kitchenaid, I’d like you in tangerine or paprika

Maybe we could live together someday in Topeka.

Mom says I’m not old enough for that type of commitment

But you would work well all the time, not just intermittent.

Why should we be kept apart, when we’re so in love?

Sometimes I suspect this match was made in Heaven up above.

I hope that we shall meet up soon, what magic we would make.

Perhaps that’s why our love’s forbidden, it’s too much for the world to take.

Love,

R

    Just wait until tangerine and paprika are “out of season” and pick one up at William-Sonoma for 99% off. Hmmmph…who would want an “out of season” color. Never mind, go out and buy one full price.

    Dear Sisterfriend, You are pathetic. Or maybe that’s just my jealousy talkin’, as I only have a plain white Kitchenaid. I did appreciate the shout out to the decades old hand-me-down hand mixer though! As, I’m sure, did Grandmother. Love, Yaya

    You should send this to Kitchen-Aide, perhaps they’d give you one for free… or a coupon!
    Worth a try!

    I just showed Dad your post and he said, after looking at the picture of you walking hand in hand on the beach, “She should stay away from that guy, he will probably ‘beater'” Mom didn’t get it at first…

    In my defense, I didn’t know which picture they were talking about!
