Sick of Cooking, Lake Worth Woman Stabs Man

There's a point in every person's life when the age-old question rears its ugly head -- "What's for dinner?" 

This question may be posed by child, spouse, or roommate, but it always brings a shudder of dread -- especially accompanied by the inherent whine of "not pasta/burgers/salad again!"

The Sun-Sentinel reported today that 46-year-old Lake Worth resident Lisa Cherry got into an argument with an unidentified man over food. The argument escalated when Cherry started drinking beer and throwing food out the front door because she said she was sick of cooking for him.

The gentleman reciprocated by threatening to cut "her pony tail off if she didn't stop throwing things." That's when Cherry allegedly picked up a kitchen knife, cut the phone line, and stabbed the man in the hand.

According to the Palm Beach Sheriff's Department,

Cherry was arrested on Monday for aggravated assault with a deadly

weapon and is being held at the main detention facility pending someone

posting the $1,000 bail.

That's some pricey food fight.
