An Introduction to Frying Pans.
Trust me on this one, go back and spend the minute to read the above excerpt… It will make you smile. Only our dear author Alexis can give us a contemporary overview of the multi-use (slightly fishy) frying pan, the unsociable social status of bachelors over the age of 30, and the old housekeeper with a touch of lumbago…
And in sum:
Have a wonderful day!
