The husband's sense of humor turned his wife's frantic baking episode into a funny one and people shared similar experiences.
Being locked inside our homes is always a bummer. Entertainment like watching TV or scrolling through social media can keep us sane only for a few hours, after which we all go a bit crazy. In such cases, most people would resort to making use of their passions, like cooking, baking, knitting, painting and sometimes even cleaning. So, a wife decided to go on a baking spree as she couldn't leave the house due to snow and her husband had the most hilarious reaction to it. u/a-light-at-the-end posted a picture on Reddit of what her husband did and many users recalled similar experiences of theirs.
The caption on her post read, "Trapped in the house due to snow, on my 7th variety of baked goods in 24 hours and husband writes this by the road." As the woman was frantically baking to kill the boredom of staying indoors, her husband wrote on the bed of snow outside their home, "Help! Wife won't stop baking." Apparently, he was too flabbergasted by the crazy baker side of his wife but also wanted to make her laugh. The wife found her husband's hilarious 'call for help' worth capturing on camera and shared it in a community for bakers. People found this too funny and many could relate to the wife's baking spree.
When u/Knitsanity commented that they used to do the same during the pandemic lockdown, the wife replied, "Well, back then, I was an alcoholic. I’ve been sober three years and being trapped in the house brings back a lot of those memories. But I just find better things to do with my time these days." The wife added in the comment section that she had been going crazy with her newly-bought bread machine. "Also those chocolate cookies. Made pimento cheese, slaw dressing and like five types of bread. Never know if the power might go out," she wrote.
She also bragged a little about her humorous husband saying, "He puts up with every phase I go through, whether it’s my sunflowers, my art, my cooking. Whenever I get really excited about something, he encourages it like no other! He is my biggest fan, he knew it would make me laugh. He definitely would never complain about me spending a lot of time in the kitchen. In fact, he went out with the kids in the snow so I could stay in where it’s warm!" To see such a beautiful relationship thrive even in the boredom of being locked inside the house is quite inspiring.
"I have been baking/cooking nonstop since Sunday, but I ran out of yeast and butter. I had to start making different pastas instead," commented u/sahmama710 who could relate to the wife's wild baking episode. "I baked eight small-batch recipes of cookies (1/2 to 1 dozen each) this morning lol. My husband does not want any help sent," joked u/Elegant-Pressure-290. "Love this! I’m the same way and it’s my happy place. Your husband is hilarious. If your neighbors are smart, they will start bringing over offerings in exchange for your extra goodies. Bring back the trading goods/services system!" commented u/ames_006.
