    Default Do you wear an apron when cooking?

    I have one lying around but I never wear it...
    I'm a messy cook and I do get splattered etc but since I'm not usually wearing any fancy clothes, I don't bother wearing it.

    How do you feel about apron's symbolism? (i.e. that women are supposed to stay in the kitchen) When I thought of this topic, it reminded me of the time we were discussing gender roles in one of my classes at school.
    I don't think it's common nowadays for women to wear aprons maybe because a lot of them are juggling career and housework, multi-tasking etc.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    I had a nice colorful apron but I never used it so I gave it to my nephew since he has taken up cooking. He loves to wear it. Dont worry its not girlie, its unisex.

    I wear one once in a while, but I usually don't remember. An ex-boyfriend gave me an apron and a Dustbuster for my birthday, and I knew that was the end of our relationship. I still have the apron -- it's yellow with a Picasso print. I mostly wear it for holiday meals. It doesn't signify anything to me any more -- but it used to!

    I usually wear one when I do art projects. I kind of like the idea of doing something so unlike a housewife while wearing an apron.

    I rarely wear one, the exception to that being if we are entertaining and I am dressed up and I don't want to splatter my good clothes. Normally I am cooking whilst wearing scruffs so I don't bother.
    A big boy did it and ran away.

    I have an apron that was my grandmothers, she's been gone 30 years. It's a full apron with the part that goes around the neck. It's hanging on a hook behind the door with an apron my mother gave me, a cutesy country cream colored full apron. I don't wear them very often, only if I want to protect my clothes. I don't notice them hanging there very often but when I do I think of my "baka". She always wore a dress with an apron over it. She was a baker, pies, donuts, nut bread and strudel. I loved it when she came to stay with us. I'll have to remind my daughter about the apron that she will have one day.......

    I always forget and always end up with grease/food on my clothes. I don't forget it when doing the dishes, though.
