“Lost in the Kitchen” by Dave Barry is Dave tying to explain how most men are not able to do many things that most woman usually occupy themselves doing in the house. “Lost in the Kitchen” contains humor; it can be assumed that it is because Dave Barry is also a comedian.

Dave Barry focuses on a thanksgiving dinner in where his wife and him went to a dinner with friends. While his wife arrived and went straight in the kitchen knowing exactly what she had to do. Him and his friend could not even do the simple task of taking care of the children like his wife had asked of him. They were both more preoccupied with the TV than the children.

The point that Dave tries to get through is that women have came very far since women got there rights women have been able to do more things including the roles of men, but men have not really been more helping in women roles for the most part. Now women do not have to depend for men while most men need much from the women in order to survive.

In my opinion Dave does have a point because I believe that many men are very needy of women and do not realize or appreciate it for the most part. I also believe that in general through my personal observations me do have a harder time doing many of the roles that are considered a woman’s role.
