Bye bye Mr.Henckle

So, I order a smell good giant wax bar and a warmer for my son's pre-school fundraiser. I usually don't partake in smelly good stuff, it makes me sneeze. But, this seemed fairly non-offensive and I admit, now that it is the middle of winter, my house could use some make it smell good freshening.
So the company Scentsy sends the stuff in two small boxes via UPS. I could have waited for snail mail and they could have passed the savings onto the pre-school, but it is what it is. Besides, the boys love the big brown truck pulling up in the driveway.
The giant lavender scented wax bar does not come with directions. The only way I can see to get the square out for melting is to cut it out or dump the whole bar and start cutting that way. I go with option number one.
Grabbing my oh so handy Henckle serrated knife, I go at it. When I have cut the bar, I give a little pull upwards to release the waxy square and SNAP!
I have had this Henckle knife for the better part of 15 years. It has cut everything from bread to tin cans with nary a problem. Mr. Henckle is now in three pieces.
I now feel like the delicately scented bars of wax from hell have beaten me down. I no longer want to sniff it's delicate aroma as it wafts through the house. I want to watch it burn in a fiery bonfire, outside, away from all things delicate and smell goody.
So long Mr.Henckle, you will be missed.
