Religion – Today’s society is much too complex to be governed by principles and rules that were set thousands of years ago. With so much of hatred spewing from them it is about time we leave them behind and move on. We really don’t need guidelines to pray or to love.
People who don’t Recycle – I’m not saying you need to heave that guilty-green gasp at every breath (I have friends who do that and I know how annoying that can be). But it really doesn’t take much to do your little. Switch off lights when you leave a room, stop running the faucet while brushing or shaving, walk instead of driving to blow off steam and you’ve done your bit. Yes, small things add up, big time.
Guys Obsessed with their Looks – Yes guys, unfortunately no one cares a damn if you wore your your blue jeans, your grey ones or none at all. Just, shave, shower and check your breath. That and a fully functioning upper storey is sufficient to turn us on. Don’t let us catch you looking into the mirror, we might just throw up on you.
Mothers – Why Oh Why do we strut around with that righteous indignation???!! I hate it when my mother does it and I find myself playing the same cards on my preschooler. I take solace knowing all mothers screw up their kids! Can we blame our hormones here?
Racism – Aren’t we all guilty of it? Any form of prejudice we hold against the other stems from our own insecurities and our overwhelming urge to be superior. I’d like to find our amoeba forefather (amoebae don’t die do they?) and ask him(her/it?) what color he is and what religion he follows and why we are all so messed up!
Why Roy Can’t Leave the Toilet Seat Down- My 3 (soon to be 4) year old, just over a year of having learnt to use the toilet, religiously, meticulously puts down the toilet seat every single time he’s done with his business. But, my 33 year old husband, doesn’t think it is a big deal to rescue me and my wet behind from the toilet bowl that I invariably fall into because he forgets to put the seat down every single day! Now, is this about my bad memory or his?
Why Parents Today Over Provide for their Kids – Kids only need a safe loving home and a sound education(no,it doesn’t include all the classes you drive them to). Didn’t we all do fine with the little we had? When did raising kids become a competition?
Why did Evolution provide me with more Hair on the Face than on my Head?- Totally tongue tied about this one !
Ok, now from things I don’t get to the one thing I totally get – Food and Repartee. For the last six months I’ve posted over a hundred recipes and today I write not a recipe but a note of thanks for all your warm and encouraging comments, emails, advice and enquiries. Some of you come here for the recipe, some to read my banter and some out of compulsion (Yes, it is tough being my friend and I expect way too much. Now, suck it it up and get on with it already!). For whatever may be the reason you come here, I’m glad you do and for that I’m really grateful. – Thank you.
And since of course I can’t leave without at least one cooking tip, here’s a super simple dessert idea for a balmy summer evening – Cut up a combination of soft and crunchy, sweet and sour fruits, to bite size pieces and serve each bowl of fruit with a dollop of strawberry or vanilla ice-cream. And if you want to take it up a notch, sprinkle each serving with a tsp of dried fruit and nuts. Absolutely no effort, but your guest will leave mighty pleased with the dessert YOU made .
