The Colored Sheep I Had Discovered Were Gone
I used to always try to make sure every dish was honored by one egg and a pinch of poignant surprise. That is, until I took a big bite and found myself with a mouthful of securities fraud and obstructing justice. It was exactly then that I decided to change my approach. Now I cook on the atomic level using mainly nucleophilic substitution on the alkyl halide, to give the alkylated compound a fresh aroma and Brussels sprouts-like texture. But I still experience a perpetual inner conflict when I leave the poignant surprise out.
