Some People Should Really Just Stick to the Script
Loyal followers may recall that my partner is an aweful cook. Just the worst. I mean, he’s a great guy in sooo many ways, just cooking isn’t one of them.
Last Wednesday it was Roger’s birthday.I wanted to make him something special. Since he doesn’t like cake, or chocolate, I decided to bake him some granola bars. They turned out pretty well, so Roger insisted I give him the recipe. I actually just threw some eggs, oatmeal, milk, vanilla, honey, and dried fruit into a pan and stuck it in the oven, but I tried to make it sound as methodical as possible. Clearly I didn’t do a very good job, because I just had this conversation:
Roger: I just made granola bars and the didn’t stick together.
Me: awe. Did you add milk? I swear that’s the secret.
Roger: No i did not. Haha dammit. Next time I will. I added coffee cream
Me: …for real?
Roger: …I wanted to make an experiment.
Me: So did it have any effect at all?
Roger: hard to tell. But it looks whiter.
Me: That’s what oatmeal needs to be. Whiter.
