i should get a culinary masters degree in food appreciation. i’d graduate top of the class! i could even teach a course, and be a professor. i would have all the students make gourmet meals, and then i would have to eat them all so i could grade them. my finely tuned taste buds would immediately sense if everything was as yummy as it should be.
and if there was an ingredient missing i would make the student redo the whole thing, and then i would have to eat that too. what a swell job, and i would be extremely good at it! for now i’ll just have to dream about it, and also about tonight’s dinner. it’s asparagus soup, the really creamy kind with chopped yellow onion and unsalted butter and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a tiny bit of salt and pepper.
