Kitchenderanged

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: kitchen-dee-ranged

Sentence: Everyone knew not to mess with mom in the kitchen. If she got mad whatever was in her hand, a pot, spoon or spatula, became an implement of household law enforcement.

We decided that it was much better to kiss the cook than to kid her.
