Just wait until you have scary sharp knives and you rattle off knife steels as readily as she does fabric and cuts of dresses. Then there will come the time when your chopping skills will leave her in the dust and she will want you to take over parts of her dishes. After that it becomes an obsession for you that may necessitate hiding knife gear, late night forum chat, or small lies like representing the down payment as the full price of the knife (because you 'forgot'). As I learned in my higher education: all development/progress also brings social change. Your kitchen is about to become a different place.
