Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (Should all men know how to cook?)

Let’s be real… When I am hungry I will go warm the car up, because I automatically know I am going someplace to eat. I know that sounds bad, but I firmly believe that while I can operate all kinds of musical gadgets I am a lame bird when it comes to preparing my own food. Don’t get me wrong. There are some things that I can actually “cook.” I can boil eggs and I know how to make a reasonable cheeseburger on the George Foreman grill. I also know how to pour Raisin Bran from out of the box into a bowl. I might even find a way to “fry water.” Other than that I consider myself to be “cuisine challenged.” Hey, at least I am honest about it. If someone were sick I ¬†would “never” cook for him or her because I would want them to get better. The only person who can survive my cooking is me…. so far…. Is it imperative for a man to know how to cook something? I remember many years ago doing a gig in Miami at this fancy hotel. There was no place to eat anywhere close by except for their restaurant. I was really hungry and I looked at the menu. These buzzards actually charged $25 for a cheeseburger. That was the one time I “wished” I could have cooked something on my own. Was the burger “worth” the $25 I spent on it? “Hail to the nawrl…” However, there was no place else left to get something to eat (and trust me, I would have gladly walked miles to get something decent). Why haven’t I learned how to cook? I honestly don’t know. I don’t want to sound sexist and say that women do it better than men (even though I often do feel that way). One of these days I hope to learn at least a little more than what I know now. The world had better prepare if I start cooking. Okay, obviously this topic wasn’t the greatest to post today, but from my perspective on it was truly genuine. Thank you so much for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
