Here’s how my family helped me celebrate my birthday.
My daughter, age 10, bought me a gigantic lime green pillow. It is quite possibly the guadiest and most comfortable thing I’ve ever owned. (Keep in mind I wore Troll Doll earrings in high school, so I know gaudy.)
The boy, age 12, bought me a travel coffee mug. As I hope to give up caffeine this year, it shall later be a tea travel mug.
My husband gave me a new chef knife and International Cooking lessons. Starting next week, I will spend my Wednesday nights at the local community college, learning how to cook food from France, Mexico, Italy and Japan.
I am excited about this, but I have two concerns.
1 — I am supposed to bring an apron. Do stores even sell aprons that aren’t for men who grill?
2 — My new knife is HUGE! How do I carry that into class without looking like Michael Myers?
