My friend and frequent commenter Steve Halter (hi, Steve!) recently interviewed me for his blog, Interesting Things. (I'm not sure if I qualify as genuinely interesting, but I am glad that the subtitle to Steve's blog isn't, "What the Hell, I'm Bored and Have Nothing Better To Do.")
I had fun answering the questions. Steve came up with some pretty clever queries!
It was certainly more fun than the cooking class I took this afternoon, wherein I cut myself about 2 minutes into the 90 minute class.
So, yeah, nobody got to take anything home. Thanks to me.
(You're welcome, classmates. Y'all can look forward to having me in more of your classes in the future, too. You'll remember me. I'm the really clumsy guy. Also, you'll recognize me by my blood.)Close Permalink
... in the rack wasn't being used by the sharpest student.
Cooking class? Are you that bored with frozen dinners?
(Jokes aside, good for you. Just be careful, eh?)
I think it's more accurate to say the sharpest knife went to the dullest student. (Zing!!)
I just thought I should try to come out of my shell a little bit. Obviously, the lesson here is that leaving the comfort of my hermit-crab shell only leads to bodily injury. I'll never make that mistake again...
Was the knife in question sharp or dull? Often, it is a dull knife that causes kitchen accidents as people end up applying too much pressure and slippage occurs.
Cooking can be great fun--applied chemistry that you get to eat.
They actually said that in the class, about how dull knifes can actually lead to more accidents! The knife in my case was really, really sharp. I'm just plain clumsy.
As a fellow hermit, I recommend watching Alton Brown's "Good Eats" if you want to learn to cook without actual classes. He's like the Bill Nye of cooking and his recipes always work.
