    I totally get Harry’s way. Who wants a lumpy sandwich or incorrect bread to fillings ratio? Oh, wait, I’m an engineer….

    I have a theory… in college/Uni ALL engineers have to take on top of reg coursework, Engineering cuisine 101/102 and explanations 101(where you learn to give complex exp. to simple Q’s)…afterall if you’re going to do it, at least make your engineering brethern proud!
    ps my dad’s an engineer.. so yeah this WHOLE topic applies…. lol

    I know way too many engineers.

    One of my friends has his own special way of peeling an orange. Another of my friends has a tendancy to try to get every single detail of a story correct (even the parts that don’t typically matter… like if it was at 12:30 or 12:45 that afternoon). Another one has to follow the rules of any packaged food exactly.

    Though I can’t quite complain as I am a math person myself. This is probably why I am friends with so many engineers as I at least understand where they are coming from as I sure do love my algorithms.

    LOL. So apparently, my husband isn’t weird…to anyone but me :) There are days when I look at him and think, “really? We’re both human?”

    OTOH, he looks at me and thinks the same thing.

    Um one has to fear a PB&J. I mean I am OCD but daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang, that was amazing!

  6. Laurie Says:

    LOL. We do not do PB & J. Can you imagine? The man would starve.

    I totally understand your husband’s way. When I make sandwiches it drives my husband crazy:) i’m not an engineer, but I went to school for graphic design…i wonder if that has anything to do with that…hmmm

  8. Laurie Says:

    LOL. Okay, because you read my blog I can still like you. But I still think my husband is crazy!

    Oh dear…I’m marrying an engineer in five months…I’ve noticed certain tendancies, but I’m getting a picture :D I have to give him credit though; he loves me to death and treats me like a princess :D

  10. Laurie Says:

    Congratulations! The good thing is–engineers are very consistent people, so you will probably always be treated like a princess :)

    Just found your blog today and am loving it!
    I understand your confusion; I see it in my husband all the time. To me, a sandwich is a work of art, every bite to be savored. My husband isn’t the foodie I am so he just slaps it all together and considers it done! ;)

  12. Laurie Says:

    LOL. Thanks for reading, even if you are taking Harry’s side :)

    This is so hilarious to me because I am a sister of an enginerd and many, many years ago was a receptionist at an all-male firm of engineers. These men designed the entire HVAC for Sears Tower — SEARS! TOWER!– but could not remember to bring the bathroom keys back out of bathroom. They were brilliant, focused, and…well, I cannot count how many times I’d walk into the break room to find they’d completely disassembled the copy machine, were creating plans to fix it, were organizing parts and making notes in the manuals — almost always because there was a paper jam or the ink needed to be refilled. It was absolutely entertaining. Messy and totally different-brained than me, but very entertaining.

    @Jessica, when we first married, my MIL took me to the garage and showed me where all her toasters had gone to die. Apparently, my husband was trying to “improve” them.

    Let’s just say it’s been a long time since I’ve had toast…

    OMG, I think I just found a new favorite blog! Are you sure he isn’t *that* precise to get out of making lunch for the kids? You must have a lot of patience when he’s in the kitchen. My husband gets his meat sliced to his liking but other than that, is pretty slack about putting sandwiches together. Thank goodness because I’m an incredibly impatient person (blame the star sign, Aries).

  16. Laurie Says:

    @Karen, Thank you so much! I have patience, because I like to eat. And honestly? I’m a horrible cook and he isn’t. All that pickiness has some advantage :)
